TRACK, EXPOSE AND COMBAT ZIONOPHOBIA IN ACADEMIA
We are a group of Columbia University and Barnard College alumni, faculty, students and their parents who are fed up with the relentless antisemitic anti-Israeli propaganda and activity at our Alma Mater.
We do not want to see Columbia's reputation tarnished further by the inaction of the administration seemingly unwilling or incapable of reining in the growing antisemitism directed at the Jewish students by the virulently anti-Israel faculty and aggressive student activists on campus.
Why Start with Columbia University?
There are a number of reasons for starting with Columbia University.
First, Columbia University is our Alma Mater and we are concerned by its reputation at the hotbed of antisemitism.
Second, it is an important battle ground in the fight against bias and antisemitism in academia.
