The following document was prepared and released jointly by the AAUP and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). 

“Recently, the United States has experienced an unprecedented spike in hate crimes and threats, both physical and verbal, on college and university campuses. These have been directed against African Americans, immigrants, members of the LGBTQ community, religious minorities, women, people with disabilities, and others. In addition, many on campus have been targeted and harassed for statements that they have made both inside and outside of the classroom.”
