What We Do

Our Mission

Kids and teens are bullied everyday in schools and online. For centuries, the Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) community has been pushed to the sidelines, considered to be outsiders who have to continually prove that we belong. AAPI youth are bullied for their appearances, skin color, accents, food and more.

Unfortunately, many AAPI youth who are bullied face unique cultural, religious, and language barriers that can keep them from getting help. Act To Change envisions a world where every child can grow up feeling safe and celebrated in their identities.

2024 AAPI Youth Bullying Survey

Bullying of AAPI youth is astonishingly normalized everywhere in America, and with your input in this survey, we will make policy recommendations, anti-bullying curriculum and programming.

Calling AAPI youth ages 13 and older to share your experiences. Survey is conducted in partnership with researchers at the Bullying Prevention and Mental Health Promotion Lab at the University of Maryland, College Park. One participant will receive an Apple iPad.

2024 AAPI Anti-Bullying Book List

Many Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) kids and youth yearn to see themselves in the characters they read about. We all deserve to be represented in the books we read, but AAPIs are sorely underrepresented in literature.

Seeing ourselves in books helps us feel seen. Act To Change and The Very Asian Foundation have released this book list for 2024 to help AAPI youth feel like they belong – in books, in schools and public spaces, and in America.
