We, the undersigned, are deeply disappointed by the actions of the Columbia College Student Council (CCSC) regarding the recent Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) referendum proposal.
Columbia’s mission statement emphasizes fostering diversity and meaningful campus relationships. This referendum flies in the face of those goals. Rather than sparking a peaceful discussion of Columbia’s global impact, BDS silences and marginalizes an entire community on our campus. By voting to allow this referendum on the ballot, CCSC is blindly disenfranchising an entire group of Columbia students.
As students, alumni, faculty, and concerned community members, we are united together in agreement that BDS is not, and will never be, the solution. Sign the petition to stand against BDS at Columbia!
