About Act To Change
Act To Change 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.
Act To Change 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 and Hate and hosted its first youth conference, Strength in Solidarity: Building Communities of Kindness. 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 and Hate.
We envision a world where every child feels safe in the expression of their identities. Every year, Act To Change fights bullying by empowering youth through initiatives like Homeroom Workshop, Youth Ambassador Program, the AAPI Day Against Bullying and Hate, and more.
