At every turn and post on social media, we encounter images and reminders of the tumultuous sociopolitical climate of today. Scholars, educators, and activists are now being challenged to resist and reclaim our stories and identities in the face of extreme adversity. In order to honor the work of our community, we curated this special issue to challenge the status quo of higher education policies and practices used to divide us during the current Trump-era administration. Furthermore, this special issue speaks to the nuanced experiences that dismantle oppressive practices, illuminates the collective knowledge of marginalized voices, and hopefully, changes the narrative within higher education and student affairs.
