    1. Meeting with President McCormick of Rutgers University


      Last night students & alumni met with President McCormick to discuss the impact that NYPD Surveillance has had upon students, parents, faculty, staff, & alumni.

      We felt the meeting was very productive. Students from ALL CAMPUSES aired their concerns with the administration. We will continue to work with Rutgers University to proactively ensure the safety of all students on campus.

      One of the immediate outcomes of this meeting was the letter below President McCormick to the NJ Attorney General. He has also sent a copy of that letter to Attorney General Eric Holder & Governor Chris Christie.

      Our Press Release can be found at this link:

      Please know that this statement is not the end but just the beginning as we work towards making the campus environment safe for all.

      I wouldn't want the new generation coming in thinking they have something to fear when they should be the ones protected from the unfortunate violence taking place in our schools and colleges so much more frequently by random and isolated individuals - who btw happen to be non-Muslims
