I cannot thank everyone enough for the outpouring of support that I have received since I published on 2/21 my email that was requested by the Pope Center. I have received emails and phone calls from faculty across the UNC system and beyond who are outraged and appalled at the idea of the challenge to academic freedom that my case (and the case of my colleagues) represents to those of us who disagree with the influence that corporate money has to shape student ideology in higher education.
I honestly did not expect so much attention to my blog (it's never seen the like) or outspokenness against the actions of the Pope Center and the Koch Foundation.
So this is just a simple thank you. And this is an assertion as well that this is what vegan activism looks like.
