FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 2, 2019
Contact: Avi D. Gordon, Executive Director, Alums for Campus Fairness
Alums for Campus Fairness (ACF) condemns Israel Apartheid Week 2019 (IAW) that has been brought to universities across the country. Dozens of campuses are affected by this hateful week.
While we support that every campus is a marketplace of ideas and diverse viewpoints are shared everyday, it should be noted that IAW demonizes, delegitimizes, and applies double standards to Israel. Jewish and Pro-Israel students and its many allies on campus are supported by ACF’s Chapters across the country and are committed to productive and fair discourse regarding Israel.
We hope that campus administrations will work with us to counter anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias. We ask that they unequivocally oppose IAW and support Jewish and Pro-Israel students.
