Dear UC students, parents, faculty, alumni and stakeholders,
In response to the alarming escalation of anti-Semitism at the University of California, the UC Regents Working Group recently released a Statement of Principles Against Intolerance that includes strong introductory language condemning anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, for example:
“Anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and other forms of discrimination have no place at the University of California.”
We need your help to support the efforts of the UC Regents Working Group. The vote on the Statement will be next Wednesday, March 23rd.
Please Sign & Share the PETITION.
We hope this action will help return our campuses to places that respect and value diversity and where all students feel safe.
Thank you very much for signing and sharing the petition,
