I wrote a response to the despicable hate crime that occurred at The New School this weekend on Public Seminar. I wish for two revisions, so I state them here. First of all, I should have named the hate as anti-Semitism. That needs to be specified even as the crime speaks to a wider world of hatred that is becoming ever more visible. Secondly, I wish I had declared more clearly that while the school needs to be a haven, it is obviously not so for everyone right now. We must make it so.
And one way to do so is to support the petition to make The New School a Sanctuary Campus.
