About Act To Change
Act To Change (ATC) is dedicated to ending bullying, especially among AAPI youth. It leverages a comprehensive approach spanning programming, partnerships, digital outreach, and policy and advocacy to drive change. ATC originally launched in 2015 as a public awareness campaign under President Obama’s White House Initiative on AAPIs and relaunched as a nonprofit in 2018. In 2019, ATC led the first-ever AAPI Day Against Bullying+Hate and hosted its first youth conference, Strength in Solidarity: Building Communities of Kindness, in LA with actors Punam Patel and Hudson Yang. In 2020, ATC responded to the increasing incidences of hate against AAPIs amid the COVID19 pandemic by launching a #CovidConvos dialogue series and a second annual AAPI Day Against Bullying + Hate. The virtual program UNITED WE STAND rallied 200 organizations and featured guests including Daniel Dae Kim, Lisa Ling, Tan France, Padma Lakshmi, John Cho, Kal Penn, garnering 1300+ live views.
