Miko Peled Press Release – Student Government Statement on Miko Peled
(Description note, “Today, activist Miko Peled will speak on campus, hosted by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). Students have been expressing concern over social media, to their elected representatives, and throughout campus regarding anti-semitic comments Mr. Peled posted on Twitter. A number of students have expressed discomfort and anger surrounding his speaking engagement… While Student Government supports the right to freedom of speech, and encourages campus-wide dialogue, we condemn an event where students feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. The Undergraduate Student Government of Drew University aspires to see wide and inclusive discussions of differing opinions; not ones that are rooted in perceived bigotry.”)
