Act To Change is devastated by the horrific violence in Monterey Park, California, a majority Asian American ethnoburb and major center for the Chinese American community. That such violence occurred during the Lunar New Year holidays in what should be a time of joy for our communities adds to the pain of this tragic incident. We mourn for the victims and grieve with their families who should be centered during this difficult time. As an organization committed to embracing and celebrating our diverse AAPI youth and communities, we condemn violence in all forms.
