The Student Conservation Association mourns and strongly condemns the recent rash of violence against Asians and Asian Americans. These acts are as horrifying as they are senseless, and remind us that even after months of racial reckoning and soul searching, as a nation we still have much to reconcile.

We must not tolerate prejudice, bigotry, or injustice, and we must all rise as one against these vicious attacks.

As in nature, diversity makes us stronger. A threat against one is a threat against all. And that is not only unacceptable, it is unsustainable.
