Emancipate NC has partnered with ACLU-NC, Palestine Legal, and the National Lawyers Guild-NC to draft a letter to UNC-CH Counsel regarding recent actions by UNC-Chapel Hill against student protestors espousing speech in support of a ceasefire in Palestine. The letter details that these actions by UNC violate the First and Fourteenth Amendments and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. We demand that the University take immediate steps to remedy this overreaction to students peacefully speaking out on a contentious political issue.
