Co-Sign Form Investigating Suppression
Please place your name in this form if you are willing to co-sign, requesting that the Board of Directors of Creative Commons investigate the allegations of Ryan Merkley suppressing the sexual harassment story of Billy Meinke. If you sign below, your name will be listed below the following paragraph in an open letter:

"We, the undersigned, urge the Board of Directors of Creative Commons to fully investigate the allegations of suppression and the enabling of harassment described in the blog post published on September 24, 2018 by Billy Meinke. Given the leadership role of Creative Commons within the open education movement, the core values of this community, the gravity of the alleged actions, and the personal risk associated with speaking out, we believe that it is essential that the organization take seriously these allegations and order an investigation into the alleged actions of both the harasser and the CEO of Creative Commons. A thorough, impartial, and transparent investigation is essential if Creative Commons is to maintain its position of trust and leadership within the open education community."

Thank you for your support in this matter.
