A more mindful approach to humanitarian action.


100 million people have been forced to flee their homes.

In the past decade, the refugee population has more than doubled because of increasing social, religious, and political persecution around the world. With your help, we're creating a new standard for humanitarian aid – where displaced communities have agency, voice, and ownership in their lives.

Working together.

iACT is powered by our passionate community of volunteers who bring a diverse set of skills, experience, and knowledge to our work. 


iACT works across the globe to increase and improve opportunities for people affected by conflict. Based in Los Angeles, we have inspired more than 150,000 Americans to connect more deeply with conflict-affected communities and offered them ways to take action.

What led iACT to the US-Mexico Border?

"It’s because of what these people have fled and endured in displacement, it’s because of our shared humanity, it’s because education and play get lost in the immigration process, and it’s because few other organizations are there to help."

- Sara-Christine Dallain, iACT Executive Director

"I've always felt that I will leave this world a better place, and each day there is something I can do to work towards this. Educate. Activate. Empower."
