Adopted by the National Council of the American Studies Association (October 12, 2006)

WHEREAS the American Studies Association is an organization dedicated to the preservation of free academic inquiry for peoples the world over; and

WHEREAS the U.S. invasion of Iraq and the consequent stifling of civil liberties threaten academic freedom and compromise scholarly integrity; and

WHEREAS the American Studies Association is committed to promoting education opportunities for all students here and beyond our borders; and

WHEREAS military recruiters are disproportionately enlisting working-class students and students of color, and interfering with their completion of secondary and higher educations;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the American Studies Association calls for the end of the war and the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq.
