Rescind Eric Greitens' Honorary Degree

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is under investigation for blackmailing and physically assaulting a woman with whom he was intimate in 2015. Greitens received an honorary doctorate from Tufts University in June 2012, and this appearance helped launch Greitens' public profile. Greitens' speech was featured on CNN alongside speeches by other high profile political figures. We call on Tufts University to rescind Greitens' honorary degree in light of his abusive and misogynistic actions. In order to uphold the values and reputation of Tufts University, its students, and its alumni, we demand that the University demonstrate that gender-based and intimate partner violence is unacceptable.
