Act To Change Welcomes Inaugural Executive Director

Act To Change is proud to welcome its first Executive Director, Andrew Murphy!

From a public awareness campaign launched out of President Obama’s White House in 2015 to a fully-volunteer run non-profit organization in 2018-2022, we are delighted to expand our team with a new Executive Director this year.

“I’m thrilled to join Act To Change as the organization reaches a new milestone on its mission to end bullying. As a Korean American adoptee who grew up in the South and faced considerable bullying, I know the struggles that AAPI youth face in their schools and communities.

Act To Change is unflinching in its commitment to uplift youth voices, raise awareness around bullying, and stop bullying before it happens.

Bullying disproportionately affects AAPI youth – but with awareness, knowledge and compassion, we can end bullying and celebrate our youth for their diversity and uniqueness,” said new Executive Director Andrew Murphy. 

Act To Change is excited to have Andrew at its helm to lead its anti-bullying initiatives, which include online and in-person workshops and events to raise awareness; collection of disaggregated data and usage of this data to influence policies; and creation of K-12 educational curriculum.

Act To Change will launch the third edition of its Youth Ambassador Program in February 2023. Over 40 youth in the past two cohorts received valuable mentorship and training to become ambassadors against bullying in their schools and communities. Applications for the third cohort are open until January 23, 2023. Applications are also open to join the program as a mentor.
