SIGN PETITION: https://tinyurl.com/y8xekll7
Call or email University of Michigan Dean Elizabeth Cole and President Mark Schlissel to express your support for graduate student Lucy Peterson and Professor Cheney-Lippold for honoring the Palestinian-led academic boycot of Israel by refusing to write letters of recommendation for students to study abroad at Israel’s discriminatory universities. Both instructors have come under attack by the administration: Prof. Cheney-Lippold’s wages have been frozen and his sabbatical retracted, and Peterson could be sanctioned any day.
