On January 30, the AAUP urged faculty and supporters to sign a statement of solidarity against the ban imposed by Donald Trump's executive order, "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States." Thousands signed in the first hours, and support continues to grow. Just as spontaneous protests at airports and elsewhere mobilized opposition to the ban, your expression of support for those targeted by the ban—including many faculty and students—sends a powerful message that this abuse of executive power for discriminatory purposes is unacceptable.
Sign the statement below and encourage others to sign by sharing links by e-mail and on social media.
