ASA members called upon to cast votes by May 20 on Palestinian Resolution

May 12, 2024 11:00 AM | John Curtis (Administrator)

On April 28, 2024, nineteen former presidents of ASA put out an open letter endorsing the Member Resolution for Justice in Palestine currently on the ASA ballot. That letter was disseminated to ASA section chairs/listserv managers and appears on the website for Sociologists for Palestine (S4P). The development of the Resolution began last December when a group of 125 Sociologists sent a letter and proposal to the ASA Council and Executive Committee in support of an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. In January 2024, the ASA Council declined to adopt that statement or to issue their own ceasefire statement. In early February 2024, the ASA Council issued a statement on academic freedomhere is the text. Later in February, S4P submitted a petition, signed by 581 ASA members, to include the Resolution for Justice in Palestine on the ASA ballot – here is the text. You must be a current member of ASA to vote in the ongoing election; voting continues through May 20, 2024, at 5 PM Eastern.
