Act To Change is rallying the nation – including cities, elected officials, influencers, and community organizations – around the 6th Annual National AAPI Day Against Bullying and Hate.

May 18, 2024 would have been Vincent Chin’s 69th birthday. Chin’s life was cut short four decades ago in a hate crime where two men brutally attacked him just because he looked Asian.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 11,500 cases of anti-AAPI violence and hate have been reported. AAPI youth face unprecedented amounts of bullying online and offline. Anti-Asian hate crimes decreased for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic – a 33% drop from 2021 to 2022.

Our work of raising awareness and bullying prevention helps to increase tolerance, safety and belonging among AAPI youth.

Here’s how you can support the National AAPI Day Against Bullying and Hate
