Co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate + 13 organizations support Jun’s discrimination case.
Help him fight racism.
“Mr. Yu’s experience exemplifies and exposes the pervasive ways in which implicit bias and racial discrimination against Asians can manifest in education and in the judiciary.”
— Amicus brief from Public Justice Center, Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality, Chinese American Progressive Action, Dr. Russell Jeung (co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate), LatinoJustice and Chinese for Affirmative Action
The abrupt dismissal of Jun Yu from the Idaho State University clinical psychology PhD program in 2013 was so egregious and arbitrary that three unopposed psychology experts testified for Jun at trial* (including the author of the ethics textbook ISU used to train Jun) and 14 friends of the court, or amici curiae, have filed briefs further exposing the insidious discrimination against Jun.
These 14 friends of the court include a co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate (Dr. Russell Jeung) as well as legal/civil rights organizations, and four national psychology organizations:
The university has no friends of the court, and no expert witnesses.
From the beginning the university has refused to resolve the matter. Instead, it has forced Jun into a long, expensive and exhausting battle in court that has lasted for over five years.
Help support the fight against racial discrimination in education by supporting Jun.
With the rise of the racism pandemic and race-related hate incidents, it has never been more important for all of us to stand up against racial discrimination and implicit bias.
*Dr. Gerald Koocher, Dr. Shannon Chavez-Korell and Dr. Leslie Zorwick were the expert witnesses who testified for Jun at trial. Dr. Linda Campbell, Dr. Nadya Fouad and Dr. Erin Cooley served as rebuttal experts for Jun; they did not testify at trial, as the university presented no expert witnesses to rebut.
