The White House Initiative on AAPIs has launched a public awareness campaign against bullying, called Act To Change. The campaign aims to increase awareness of bullying – including in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community – and empower communities with information and tools to help prevent and end bullying.
The new campaign website, ActToChange.org, includes video and music empowerment playlists and an organizing toolkit, and encourages visitors to “Take the Pledge” to join the #ActToChange movement and stand up against bullying. As one out of three AAPIs does not speak English fluently, resources are available on the site in Chinese, Hindi, Korean, Punjabi, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
Please join us in the #ActToChange movement! If you have a moment today, please check out ActToChange.org, Take the Pledge, and share on social media and with your networks.

New York AAPI Forum with Faith-Based & Community Leaders
Saturday, September 21, 2013
The City University New York Murphy Institute, 25 West 43rd Street, 18th Floor, New York, NY 10036
9:30 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.
The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders will convene federal officials and faith-based and community leaders in a day-long forum to share key Administration policies on economic growth, immigration, education, and civil rights. The forum will provide leaders and the broader AAPI community critical information and a better understanding of federal resources and services.
The focus of the WHIAAPI Community Forum is to accomplish three key goals:
1. Establish a space where faith-based and community leaders can meaningfully engage and interact with federal officials;
2. Identify policy and programmatic areas of concern, receive feedback, and share local success stories and practices that benefit the AAPI community;
3. Share opportunities for leaders to collaborate with the Obama administration.
