In 2019, Act To Change spearheaded the inaugural National AAPI Day Against Bullying+Hate on May 18, in honor of the birthday of Vincent Chin, whose murder in a hate crime in 1982 sparked a national uprising. This year, Act to Change is proud to host the 3rd annual national AAPI Day Against Bullying+Hate with the support of municipalities, elected officials and partner organizations. Please join us for a day of commemorative activities and a signature virtual event.

Act To Change is rallying the nation around the 3nd annual Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Day Against Bullying + Hate on May 18, 2021. Read more.
It’s more important now than ever that we stand up to xenophobia and racism.
