To: Board of Directors of the Stanford Alumni Association, Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center, 326 Galvez Street, Stanford, CA 94305 – 6105

January 7, 2021

Board of Directors:

We, the undersigned alumni of Stanford University, call upon the Stanford Alumni Association (“SAA”) to immediately expel United States Senator Josh Hawley ‘02 from SAA.

Senator Hawley’s words and actions on, and prior to, January 6, 2021 are a direct and unprecedented assault on our constitutional and democratic form of government. His baseless objection to the electoral results of Arizona and Pennsylvania, his overt support for the violent mob that swarmed the Capitol, and his relentless deceit in pursuit of power all demonstrate that Senator Hawley represents not merely a different political viewpoint, but a growing fascist threat to the United States. In light of such danger, SAA must deny Senator Hawley the privileges and benefits of SAA membership, and not allow Stanford alumni and resources to become complicit in advancing his harmful and unconscionable agenda.

Senator Hawley’s statements and conduct are also in direct violation of SAA’s Code of Conduct, which states in relevant part that “Stanford reserves the right to warn, suspend or ban any person from access to constituent resources and events whose behavior does not uphold the values of respect, integrity, honesty, and fairness.”

We, therefore, demand that the Board of Directors take action and expel Senator Hawley from the SAA without delay, including a ban on his attendance and participation in SAA events and activities.

Signed,
