As a parent of a Jewish student, I am deeply disturbed and frightened by the recent congressional hearing where the presidents of Harvard, UPenn, and MIT failed to unequivocally condemn calls for genocide against Jewish people. Their inability to clearly state that such hate speech violates campus rules on harassment is not only shocking but also dangerous.

It is alarming that in 21st century America, leaders of prestigious educational institutions cannot stand firm against anti-Semitism. This lackadaisical attitude towards hate speech creates an unsafe environment for Jewish students who are now left wondering if our safety and well-being are valued by these institutions.

According to a survey conducted by the Anti-Defamation League in 2020, 63% of American Jews have experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism in the past five years (ADL Global Survey). This statistic is already disturbingly high; it should not be exacerbated by university leaders failing to take a clear stance against hatred.

We demand immediate action. We call upon these presidents - who should be champions of diversity and inclusivity - to step down from their positions due to their failure in providing clear moral leadership. We urge all those who value justice, equality and non-discrimination on college campuses across America to join us in this cause.

Please sign this petition demanding their resignation as we strive together for safer campuses free from hate speech and discrimination.
