AAHHE as signatory on Joint Statement on Legislative Efforts to Restrict Education about Racism and American History

June 22, 2021
AAHHE has joined with PEN America, the American Historical Association, the American Association of University Professors, Association of American Colleges and Universities, and more than 100 other associations to state our firm opposition to a spate of legislative proposals being introduced across the country that target academic lessons, presentations, and discussions of racism and related issues in American history in schools, colleges, and universities.

As the statement rightly points out, "Americans of all ages deserve nothing less than a free and open exchange about history and the forces that shape our world today, an exchange that should take place inside the classroom as well as in the public realm generally".

You can visit the PEN America or the American Historical Association to read the statement.

AAHHE Statement on Violence Against Asian-Americans
The Anti-Asian Racism Must Stop
March 19, 2021


The murders of 6 women of Asian descent in Atlanta on March 16th and the deaths of 7 Asian elders resulting from racist violence in 2021 are distressing.  Since 2020, there have been more than 4,000 incidents of anti-Asian racism reported. Many of our colleagues, friends, students and families are being victimized and living in fear.  


AAHHE speaks out against these crimes of racism in our institutions, communities, and society at-large. Let us be informed and speak out to stop the anti-Asian racism. 


We must all become more informed and share facts. For more information on the documented hate crimes collected by Stop AAPI Hate, here is their most recent report, updated yesterday: https://secureservercdn.net/
