Shina Robinson

Resilience Hubs Manager, Asia Pacific Environmental Network (APEN)

Shina Robinson has a deep commitment to environmental justice as the intersection of human rights, equity, health, and ecological sanity. She experienced the link between environmental health and poverty at a young age between visiting family in the Philippines and growing up in the shadow of a Los Angeles area oil refinery. Formerly Policy Coordinator at Asia Pacific Environmental Network (APEN), Shina organized our member leaders to pass and implement policies for community resistance and resilience in Oakland, Richmond, and with statewide partners. Currently, as Resilience Hubs Manager, she now connects APEN leaders and host site partners to build a network of community-based climate resilience hubs that advance tangible models of a Just Transition in frontline communities.
