This is a critical time for academic freedom in the United States and
we must work together to let our politicians and university
administrators know that we do not support the squelching of
independent voices. Together, our voices will be heard.
The minds of future generations depend upon what we do today and
we need your help!
How You Can Help
SIGN THE OPEN LETTER ON THE COLUMBIA CONTROVERSY
This letter was drafted by Columbia University faculty members to
encourage the University administration to hold firm against the
attacks on the University and on MEALAC. After initially gathering 46
signatures, the letter was delivered to University President Lee
Bollinger. We now have many more signatures and invite all other
members of the Columbia community to join us in signing this letter.
As more signatures are collected, we will send the letter again to
|A forum for empowerment

expression for people we despise, we
don't believe in it at all."
