All Parks Alliance for Change (APAC) is a nonprofit tenants union for Minnesotans who live in mobile home parks. Its mission is to serve as a vehicle to promote meaningful social change, to protect the legal rights of park residents, and to improve the quality of life in manufactured home parks. APAC has been on the forefront of the mobile justice movement since the 1980s.

Because park residents own their homes but not the land, they often face the risk of displacement. APAC will lead a statewide grassroots campaign to promote mobile park resident rights. Staff will connect with at-risk park communities and resident-owned park cooperatives. Teams of resident advocates will then share their stories with legislators to advance public policy change. Together, APAC and its diverse community will work for safe, affordable, and stable park communities.
