Lorenzo and Karen do the same work on the same research project, with the same responsibilities, in the same lab, under the same supervisor. Raise your hand if you think they should have the same rights! Then sign here: http://bit.ly/SRUpetition #SameResearchSameRights

UAW 5810 opposes the DOJ’s racist & discriminatory China Initiative, which began under Trump. It fuels racial profiling and anti-Asian hate, & unfairly targets Chinese visa applicants. Excluding qualified researchers from US universities harms research.
