As we greet the start of spring, we also mourn the deaths of those 50 worshipers slain by a white nationalist at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. This follows a rise in Islamophobia and anti-immigrant hostilities in many cities across Europe and the US. Of grave concern is the role of government leaders in fanning flames of resentment and animosity. Regardless of political persuasion, the harming of innocent people is uncondonable.

Over the past 50 years, Asian American Studies and ethnic studies more broadly as a scholarly field has worked to educate the public about the rich history of this diverse nation. It has interrogated exclusionary policies and violent actions taken against slaves, immigrants and those indigenous to these lands and oceans. We have done this so that there may be greater understanding and respect for one another across our differences, seeing that education can carve paths towards a more just and inclusive future.
