PMRA Condemns Anti-Asian Violence, Hatred and Bigotry

The Public Management Research Association unequivocally condemns anti-Asian violence, hatred and bigotry. These acts have intensified in the past year throughout the world, with particularly egregious crimes occurring recently in the United States.  We value and affirm our Asian and Asian-descent faculty, students and other colleagues, whose human, social and scholarly contributions are critical to the discipline and to the world. We pledge to continue to encourage diversity and inclusion and commit to making our association and conferences places of safety and belonging for all participants.

We encourage members and participants to carefully review this and PMRA’s other statements regarding safety, inclusion and belonging (1, 2).
