The Exit Spring Mountain team at Nevada Public Radio is deeply saddened by the deadly mass shootings in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay, California. Our hearts are with the victims and their families. We do not yet know the exact motives for the violence. We continue to look into our past and examine the present to try to make a stronger, safer, and more equitable future for the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities here in Nevada and beyond.
With that in mind, here are two episodes from the first season of Exit Spring Mountain that look at the history of the first Asians in Southern Nevada and the U.S. The podcast episodes also examine the experiences and violence directed at the AANHPI community today and what may help us understand one another better. As always, thanks for listening.
