Act on It promotes social and racial justice. The students led a workshop focusing on achievement gaps of black and Latinx/Hispanic students in public education.

"At the end of the workshop, Act On It offered some suggestions and advice on what people, particularly educators, could do to support students of color," wrote student Nadrat Amos. The audience also shared their insights and suggestions on how to instill change.
