Thanks @JeffreyASachs @AntheaButler for amplifying our resources! We @PENamerica are deeply concerned by the rise in intimidation, hate and harassment against faculty channeled from the right wing sites. Happy to speak out, defend, advocate when profs are threatened. #freespeech https://twitter.com/AntheaButler/status/1294234583320469504
