Act To Change condemns the acts of violence in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay. On a week that should have been joyous and celebratory for our community, we are mourning the loss of over 15 victims.
We refuse to bow down to violence. We start this Lunar New Year with our loving community, and stay committed to embracing and celebrating our diverse AAPI youth and communities. We are focused on taking care of each other, and especially of taking care of our mental health in this time of collective trauma.
