GET-UP has been organizing for over a year to win formal recognition of our union and a contract with the university—and we encourage you to sign our public pledge to vote YES in a union election. An essential part of GET-UP’s mission is about building a community, one that can defend our members when our values are under attack.
Last week, GET-UP published a response to Penn Law Professor Amy Wax’s hateful op-ed about the supremacy of 1950s “bourgeois culture.” Today, we stand together to condemn the white supremacist rally and terrorist attacks in Charlottesville. As far right organizations are targeting university campuses as staging grounds for their racist culture wars, GET-UP is committed to building a university community where people from all nationalities, racial identities, and religions can thrive.
GET-UP stands together with many across our campus, joining our voice with theirs to condemn racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and oppression in all its forms. We continue to call on Amy Gutmann to condemn racism on campus, without equivocation.
GET-UP will always stand with marginalized members of our community. We hope you will too. Sign our public pledge to vote YES here.
