Social-Justice Groups Send Letter to Schools in Support of Palestinian Lives

On May 13, 2024, a coalition of fifteen social-justice legal advocacy organizations, including Muslim Advocates, wrote to hundreds of campus administrations nationwide about needed responses to campus activism in support of Palestinian lives.  The letter demands meaningful engagement of student activism in ways that center free speech and academic freedom, as students nationwide demand an end to genocide and other state and institutional violence against Palestinians. The letter urges against responses to campus activism for Palestinian freedom that are discriminatory, repressive, or punitive and recommends a number of actions to make campus learning-environments vibrant, rigorous, non-discriminatory, and inclusive. The signatory orgs will continue to support and defend students leading the U.S. movement for Palestinian lives and freedom.  Read their letter here:
