The special double issue focuses on the timely topics of Environmental Justice, Education, and Immigration and aims to inform policy debates and arenas with research on understudied populations and topics related to Asian American and Pacific Islanders.

Part One features a reflection on ten years of the journal, papers addressing alternative methods for Asian American Studies, Indian Immigrant Women Support Networks, and U.S. Immigration and Filipino Labor Export Policies in Human Trafficking. Part Two examines the intersection of Asian American Studies and Environmental Studies, revealing information and insights that can be useful in environmental and social justice advocacy, strategic planning, policy development and programming. Professor Julie Sze (UC Davis) and Charles Lee (Deputy Associate Assistant Administrator for Environmental Justice, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) served as the consulting guest editors for this portion of the volume.
