Act to Change’s ‘Imagine a Day Without (AAPI) Bullying’

18 May

Act To Change will host the “Imagine a Day Without (AAPI) Bullying” event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Rideback Ranch at 1660 Beverly Blvd., L.A. on what “would have been Vincent Chin’s 69th birthday. Chin’s life was cut short four decades ago in a hate crime where two men brutally attacked him just because he looked Asian. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 11,500 cases of anti-AAPI violence and hate have been reported. AAPI youth face unprecedented amounts of bullying online and offline. Anti-Asian hate crimes decreased for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic – a 33% drop from 2021 to 2022.” The event aims to honor Chin “and to remind AAPI youth that you are the future of our nation, and that you all belong here.” The event will include “an immersive luncheon with impact panels, roundtable discussions, and interactive sessions around bullying awareness and prevention. Free youth ticket and guardian; or free ticket for youth attendees and one guardian, caretaker or adult: $50: https://acttochange.org/2024dayagainstbullying/.
