Help Dr. Lee Protect Academic Freedom

Donation protected

I am a lifelong teacher and educator that unjustly lost my job at De Anza Community College for bringing people together using a humanistic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) approach that welcomes viewpoint diversity.

It's important to me to emphasize not what to think, but how to think critically about these topics.

With your support, I can continue advocating for inquiry-focused pedagogies, critical thinking, and intellectual humility without fear of financial repercussions.

Your donations will assist with my anticipated living expenses, health insurance costs, and additional legal costs beyond FAIR assistance.

I have appeared on multiple media outlets about this situation... I am not a liberal or conservative; I am not a Republican, Democrat, Socialist, Libertarian, or Communist; I am not left or right wing. I am just a devoted teacher that was unjustly treated.

Together, we can defend academic freedom and promote a more balanced approach to education.

Thank you for your support!
