Since March 2020, the avenue Van Vollenhoven in Schaerbeek is car-free. The decision was motivated by the need for social distancing during the COVID-19 crisis. For eight months, the inhabitants of Schaerbeek took great advantage of the space. Children learned to ride bicycles and skate. Older people could walk around and enjoy social life at a safe distance. PRMs and cyclists could safely cross the park to the other side of Schaerbeek....

“Do you want to have a positive impact on the world?” The line that opens AUC’s website appears utterly grotesque in light of the events of March 25th. As AUC alumni, we are saddened to learn that our university, which markets itself to prospective students by leveraging their desire to contribute to social and environmental justice, has allowed police to operate violently on its premises and against its own students who were calling for an end to the full-fledged genocide of Palestinians in Gaza....

FAQ

What is an Open Letter?

It's a public letter that you write to address together your company, organization, institution, city, government.

What is the difference with a petition?

The goal of a petition is to have as many people as possible to sign it. The goal of an open letter is to have people relevant to topic to sign it. It's not the same to have a petition to ask our government to make wearing a mask mandatory than having an open letter signed by 100 doctors, or a petition to ask Google to stop supporting the fossil fuel industry than an open letter signed by a 1000 of their employees. There is no author to an open letter, only co-signatories. No email address is collected. Who wrote it doesn't matter. Who signed it does.

Why do I need to provide an email address to sign a letter?

To avoid abuse. We want to make sure that each signature is linked to an actual email address. We don't record your email address unless you explicitly opted in to receive updates about the open letter that you are signing.

What about privacy?

We have no cookies, no trackers, no 3rd party script or ads. We only ask for your email address to confirm your signature (see question above).

Can I limit who can sign it?

No. That's why we recommend you to carefully share it to the right people at the beginning, so that they will get the opportunity to be first people showing up as the signatories.
