We urgently request donations to establish an emergency fund for Academics for Peace to support the faculty who lost their jobs, pensions, and their right to travel abroad after the recent crackdown targeting academic freedom in Turkey. This fund will be made exclusively available to purged faculty through close collaboration with the union Egitim-Sen and other associations that are actively assisting the purged scholars at the local and international level.
Help us reach our initial goal of $105,000. We will be able to support about 35 academics for a period of 6 months with minimum wage in Turkey (approx. $500) with this initial fund. Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law. No goods or services were provided in exchange for this donation.
