Paul Kriese has been confronting and challenging racism and hatred since his low socioeconomic status upbringing near the waterfront of Buffalo, New York through his years as a professor of political science. In addition, he is active in local politics and emphasizes the importance and power of service-learning and civic engagement in exposing students to realities different from their own. "We cannot reconstruct an environment of tolerance and inclusiveness," he writes, "unless we teach people to deconstruct the causes of hate in the first place."
