Dear University of California Chancellors:

Last March, in response to the alarming escalation of anti-Semitism at the University of California, the UC Regents unanimously passed a landmark "
Statement of Principles Against Intolerance."  In the current climate of increasing polarization and rising levels of hatred and intolerance, it is not only Jewish students who are being targeted for harm, but many other students as well. 


Recently, 47 organizations sent a letter to the Regents regarding the serious and growing problem of intolerance on UC campuses.  We are gravely concerned that students of diverse identities and beliefs are feeling increasingly threatened.

On too many campuses, one group’s freedom of expression has been used to denigrate, harass, intimidate and shut down the expression of another group. Debate is veering into hate.

We believe the landmark Regents Statement of Principles Against Intolerance couldn’t be more relevant, timely and important for all UC students. Implementing these Principles would ensure that policies and procedures are put in place to safeguard all students’ rights to freedom of expression, and that educational programs are developed to help students identify and avoid intolerant behavior.


We applaud UC Irvine Chancellor Gillman for recognizing the value of the Regents’ statement and being the first chancellor to commit his campus to a full implementation of it. We ask that you follow Chancellor Gillman’s lead and implement the Principles Against Intolerance as soon as possible on your respective campuses to ensure the safety and well-being of all students.

Signed,
