A dear friend of mine's organization has submitted their research to the APHA Conference and been accepted.

They are all immunocompromised individuals and requested remote accommodations from the APHA, which were summarily denied, with a threat to "withdraw or face repercussions."

They are responding in kind with a letter for which they need more signatures. If you have the time and inclination, please have a look! The link to sign is at the top.

Boosts help!

For further detail: the repercussions they have been threatened with are a $300 fine for not showing up, and being barred from interacting with APHA conferences for 2+ years.

Fuck that noise.

My friend's organization and mission statement, so you know who you're supporting:

"COVID Safe Campus is a nationwide group of disabled activists and academics with public health and policy expertise advocating for improved COVID protections and disability inclusion in higher education.

Our mission
To build a movement around advocating for improved COVID protections and disability inclusion in higher education."
