Members of the United Campus Workers of Georgia are profoundly alarmed by a request received by many educators at University System of Georgia (USG) institutions across the state by Representative Dunahoo that we answer questions related to topics surrounding oppression.  We believe it is an incursion on quality education in our classrooms as well as a violation of academic freedom.
