Mission Statement

Alums for Campus Fairness (ACF) harnesses the unique power of alumni to counter antisemitism and the demonization of Israel on college and university campuses across the nation. ACF is dedicated to preventing discrimination and holding educational institutions accountable for remaining pillars of truth and academic freedom. We mobilize alumni to address antisemitism by engaging with college administration and campus leaders to promote open dialogue, foster respectful debate, and challenge antisemitic rhetoric and incidents when they arise.
