On June 1, 2020 at 4:47pm a photograph of Penn State student, Ryann Milligan, surfaced on Twitter with a swastika drawn on her shoulder. This act of antisemitism and hatred towards the Jewish community cannot and will not be tolerated.

It is not enough for Penn State to say that they are going to contact Ryann Milligan. This photo is terrifying and extremely threatening, and it is not to be taken lightly. Ryann Milligan does not even begin to uphold the values of Penn State. Allowing her to remain a student of Penn State is a disservice to all Jewish people, living or dead. It sends the message that antisemitic actions and ideals are accepted by the university, and that Penn State doesn’t care about protecting its Jewish students, as well as other oppressed and underrepresented minorities.

It would be extremely demeaning and unjust to force Penn State students to walk among this antisemitic student every day. Ryann Milligan is a Rehabilitation and Human Services major, meaning she is being trained by Penn State to have a career in advocating for and helping others. How can Penn State allow itself to continue training an antisemitic person to hold such a career?

At this time, the signees of this petition are calling on Penn State to take disciplinary action against Ryann Milligan for her horrific act of antisemitism. It will never be enough for Penn State to claim that the university is contacting her. It is imperative that consequences are issued and upheld.
