Open Letter from 188 Emory Professors

Open Letter

We the undersigned, faculty members of Emory University, are upset and dismayed by the arrest and jailing of seven students peacefully demonstrating on the campus quadrangle. Such punitive treatment is an affront to the University values of honest, humane, and ethical engagement. We firmly believe that the administration is capable of finding alternative solutions.

We call upon the administration

1)      to drop all charges against the students and to insure that there be no further punitive actions taken against them.

2)      to hold an open meeting for the entire Emory community to address the issue of labor relations and Sodexo.
