My husband recently joined a group of American law professors who are responding to the Park51 controversy by “putting their money where their principles are.” Rather than just issue a statement, the three law professors who organized this initiative decided to raise funds to show their support for the endeavor. Amazingly, a letter of support signed by 219 professors of law accompanied a collective pledge for $18,000.
The professors are hoping that this initiative will receive wide press coverage. In the meantime, you can read the letter and list of signers here. LawprofsforPark51
