Stand up for academic freedom in Maryland
The Maryland General Assembly is considering identical bills in the House of Delegates and State Senate that jeopardize our right to speak freely about Israel.
SB647 and HB998, would curtail academic freedom in Maryland by prohibiting state funds to colleges and universities which support faculty participation in organizations which endorse boycotts of Israel.
Throughout our country's history, political boycott has been recognized as protected First Amendment expression, from the First Continental Congress to the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Tell your legislators to oppose this dangerous legislation, and ensure it doesn't leave committee.
