Coming soon

In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, ACT2endracism is accepting nominations to recognize essential workers of Asian descent. These workers keep us safe; they allow us to keep our fridges stocked with food, and they keep our economy going everyday and especially during the Covid-19 crisis. We want to share stories of those on the frontlines of health care, energy, finance, the food industry, government, transportation, manufacturing and communication.

You can nominate more than one individual or organization or even share your own personal story.

We encourage you to share images or video of the person at work.

We want to hear the stories of every day heroes!

Nominate Now!

Join our movement and call to action by submitting video. Our community is worried about escalating anti-Asian sentiment as our respective economies gradually open up.  We encourage you to be creative. Our messages are directed at stopping racism to inform and empower.  Keep your video short, under 60 seconds. Introduce yourself, why you support anti-racism efforts.  To share your story, please send us an email so that we can arrange to have your video sent to us.

The community came out in full force to participate in our summer webinars. We explored solutions where systemic racism is a barrier to equality. We focused on five key areas: race based data (July 28, 2020), racism in public education (Aug 5, 2020), systemic racism and policing (Aug 13, 2020), hate crimes and incidents (Aug 20, 2020), and human rights and systemic change (Aug 27, 2020).  ACT2endracism in partnership with the ACCT Foundation produced background documents on each topic. We had many esteemed speakers join us to give us valuable insight and perspectives and we gathered feedback from participants through breakout sessions.
