Urge the UC Regents to adopt the Statement of Principles Against Intolerance

Please add your name to the petition, initiated by the AMCHA initiative endorsing the UC Regents Report condemning anti-Zionism.

In response to the alarming escalation of anti-Semitism at the University of California, the UC Regents Working Group recently released its Report and Statement of Principles Against Intolerance that includes strong introductory language in the Report condemning anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism such as:

"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 adoption of the full Report will be next week, March 23rd at UCSF. We hope this action will help return our campuses to places that respect and value diversity and where all students feel safe.

Please Sign Share this petition with other UC students, parents, faculty, alumni and stakeholders.
You'll be in good company
