welcome to Los Angeles Action Center

CRY America works towards restoring to underprivileged children, especially Indian, their basic rights to survival, protection, development and participation. We believe that each of us as individuals can make a difference. All it takes is the belief that "Change is possible, because I'll make it possible". CRY America's strength lies in its supporters – our volunteers, donors, media and project partners who have come together to change the situation of underprivileged children.

CRY Los Angeles chapter was started in August 2004 with the motto ‘Together we will make a difference’. We have 66 volunteers and our core group consists of 10 members.

Every year we host a DJ party in the Spring and an Annual 5k Walk/ Run event in the Fall. In addition, every month we organize volunteer meet up events, which is a good time for volunteers to get to know each other better in an informal setting and discuss progress on upcoming events.


"Children should have the right to a healthy life. Some children in India don't have those fundamental rights that allow for good sanitation, hygiene, water, electricity. Education is a luxury and we are working hard to change that."
Gunjan Sharma
los Angeles AC Leader

"46% of children in India are underweight, 38% stunted, There are 17 million child laborers in India and 53% children in India reported having faced one or more forms of sexual abuse. Don't these statistics amaze you? Why can't these children have basic rights to education, healthcare and protection? As part of CRY America, we are working hard to change that. I volunteer for CRY America because the organization is not about charity. Rather, CRY believes in empowering communities through sustainable projects and making children aware of their rights. We partner with local efforts to attack the issue at root cause. I am a proud CRY volunteer.
Thank you for your support"
