Act To Change

Have you been bullied or know someone who has? Been teased for the way you look, what you wear, what you eat, where you’re from, how you talk, or other stereotypes? It’s not okay. Know that you are not alone and together we can make a difference. Learn about it. Talk about it. Stop it.

#ActToChange


Take the Pledge

About

Act To Change is a public awareness campaign working to address bullying, including in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.

Kids and teens are bullied in schools all across the country. Unfortunately, many AAPI youth who are bullied face unique cultural, religious, and language barriers that can keep them from getting help.

This campaign aims to empower you—students, families, educators—with the knowledge and tools you need to help stop and prevent bullying in your communities. Bullying is a problem that affects us all and we must act together to put an end to it.

Join the #ActToChange movement and stand with our supporters!

Post on social media, check out resources in your language, and take the pledge today to commit to #ActToChange.
