What Our Members Say
“SSSP is part of my core of who I am as a sociologist. I became a member as early graduate student and have found the mentorship, both peer and senior, and community ties to be invaluable as I continue on my own academic journey. I am thankful, especially now, to be part of an organization striving for social justice. My career path has not been traditional and have always felt welcomed by the SSSP community and I look forward to continuing to learn from colleagues and to supporting new members of the society in the years to come!” - Alexis Anne Bender, Emory University

Asian Americans in the Era of Covid-19
In the wake of Atlanta shooting on March 16 which left six women of Asian descent dead, protests against anti-Asian hate erupted in the U.S. On April 14, the U.S. senate passed the Covid-19 Hate Crimes Act 92-to-6 which paved the way for its final passage. The White House announced a liaison position from the Biden Administration to the Asian-American Pacific Islander community. As the nation is on its way to address this issue, it is important to understand Asian hate in the context of the American history and Covid-19. Hopefully, the country can move forward which is keenly needed.
