‘Cops Off Campus Coalition’ kicks off ‘Abolition May’ as professors across the country vow to cancel classes in support of movement

Professors across the country have vowed to cancel class and enable students, teachers, and other school personnel to strike in protest against campus police presence, according to Campus Reform.

The outlet on Friday reported that a grassroots organization dubbed the Cops Off Campus Coalition organized the “National Day of Refusal” and has asked “students, professors, and faculty members to pledge to be absent; from work, class, teaching, and more’ on that day.”

The organization, which states that it is “committed to abolishing police on campus” planned the strike for Monday.

Several hundred students, professors, and supporters have pledged to participate and signed a petition calling for area campuses across the country to remove any and all police presence.
