One Faculty, One Resistance

Democracy thrives on dissent, critical inquiry, free speech, and free research. Today more than ever, these things are under attack. Academics are being targeted and harassed and the freedom to join together on the job is in jeopardy. Producers of independent thought and knowledge, including faculty, scientists, and journalists, are threatened. Join the resistance.

Join the fight for academic freedom and faculty voice!
