Dear CA-AAUP Members,
You’ve probably heard about the Professor Watchlist, a website that seeks to “expose and document college professors who discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.”
This website poses a clear threat to academic freedom. Over the past century, such lists have been used to harass and intimidate faculty, and have a chilling effect on academic freedom and free speech.
The AAUP opposes those who seek to curtail academic freedom and stands in solidarity with colleagues who have been singled out by this website.
To support those who have been listed, we invite AAUP members and supporters to sign an open letter to Turning Point USA, the creators of the Watchlist, asking to be added to the list.
