Collective Statement by Scholars in U.S. History and Related Fields on Civil Rights and Liberties in Dangerous Times

As scholars of United States history and related fields, we have experienced concern and alarm as we went from a divisive campaign season to the election of Donald Trump as our president-elect. On the eve of a new administration whose key players have traded in hateful rhetoric and emboldened the harassment of various targets, we urge Americans to be vigilant against a mass violation of civil rights and liberties that could result if such troubling developments continue unchecked.

We sign this statement as individual scholars. Institutions are listed for identification purposes only.
