Civil Rights and Social Justice Organizations Joining Students in their Call for Resignation of SDSU President Over Student Safety Concerns
(San Diego, CA, 5/4/16) - On Wednesday, May 4th, the San Diego office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego) along with the National Action Network, Mecha De SDSU, Students for Justice in Palestine, and the Muslim Student Association held a press conference to announce a call for resignation of SDSU President Hirshman over student safety concerns.
Two days ago the students and civil right groups gave President Hirshman 48 hours to protect the students safety and security by clearly condemning the posters that named students “Terrorists” and “allies of Terrorists” on campus.

“It is the Job of the President of any body of people to make sure that those people feel safe and secure but in this case Elliot Hirshman didn't do that,” said President of National Action Network Reverend Shane Harris.  “Even after we gave him 48 hours to condemn the hate speech on those flyers he didn't do that which is why he must go.”
Now students, civil rights organizations and community leaders are drawing national attention to this call for resignation of School President Elliot Hirshman.
