≪Organizer Abstract≫
Collective action can be an empowering process in achieving the betterment of a society and well-being for all. For emerging adults, sexual and ethnic minorities, such participation is particularly important because it signifies their impact in transforming their society and influences their overall well-being and development. The four presentations in this symposium investigated the psychological and sociopolitical factors within the ecological systems that may facilitate individuals to participate in collective action, the effects of such engagement on their overall well-being, and the mechanisms by which members of the majority group engage in collective action to uphold justice for social minorities. The findings collectively point to the significance of social and cultural identity, intersectionality, citizenship, along with motivation and efficacy as contributory factors in mobilizing individuals towards collective action and enhancing their well-being.
