CFSA is teamed with several aligned organizations ( see Aligned Organizations ) and many Cornellians (including hundreds of Cornell faculty, alumni, students & staff) to defend the free speech and viewpoint diversity rights of all persons within the Cornell Community ( see Faculty-Student-Staff-Alumni Alliance ) . If you are a Cornell faculty member, student, or staff member who is being denied your rights to free speech and/or viewpoint diversity on campus, or is suffering from any associated reprisals, attacks, or threats, CFSA is ready to assist you to push back against any such unjustified actions and/or aggressions. Please get help by submitting information regarding your situation here : Submit A Case. If you are a Cornell faculty member who is threatened with job related impacts as a consequence of exercising free speech or viewpoint diversity, please provide background information here :  Unfair Practices Against Faculty.  Also, please notify CFSA of a case submission here : Send Message To CFSA.
