Rae'Lee Klein, an accomplished and successful journalism student at the Walter Cronkite school of Journalism at Arizona State University, has been removed from her position as Station Manager of the student radio station, Blaze Radio. Why? She simply shared factual information in a tweet from her personal account about the arrest warrant out for Jacob Blake. She shared an article from the New York Post, which detailed the sexual assault allegations, with the caption, "Always more to the story folks. Please read this article to get the background of Jacob Blake's arrest warrant. I think you'll be quite disgusted." 

Now, she has been removed from her position by the school because the tweet offended others and made them feel unsafe under her leadership. The board has stated they believe her actions have lost the confidence of the station. Rae'Lee has refused to step down willingly, but it is the Dean's decision to remove her from the position into a different role.

This is a blatant disregard for Rae'Lee's 1st Amendment Rights by the school, and complete hypocrasy at the highest level. The school has failed to protect her rights as a student and an individual. Journalists are tasked with the job of reporting the truth, and in doing so, she is being removed from her position.

A lawsuit has been filed against the University under the guidence of Rae'Lee's attorney, Jack Wilenchik. We, as the parents of Rae'Lee Klein, are helping our daughter take a stand, and we are asking you to take a stand with her. Donations to this campaign will be utilized to protect 1st Amendment Rights in college campuses. Rae'Lee is working with an abundance of organizations to help ensure those freedoms, and appreciates your support. There is a cycle of students being silenced across America's universities, and it's time that cycle is broken. 

Your support is greatly appreciated.

RaeLee there are lots of us pulling for you and that the University does the right thing to support you rather than trying to silence you.

Good luck RaeLee. How is that a young women needs to teach a journalism school about the freedom of speech and freedom of the press?

Because the actions taken against Rae’Lee Klein were reprehensible and unacceptable, especially by an educational institution.

We need to stand up for "real" journalists such as Rae'Lee and not just liberal, leftist sympathizers...for the most part most of the media today are NOT journalists but 1 sided instigators!! Good luck Rae'Lee !!!

This school is not for journalism, they just want to be part of the narrative. The interim dean is a coward with no integrity, bad for our future

Unbelievable how ASU has treated RaeLee. As Americans, we must all support her in defending our right to free speech. Thank you, RaeLee! 🙏🏻

You spoke the truth. If the Dean, administrators or professors cannot accept the truth then they should not, in any capacity, be involved with any educational facility. Stand strong. You will have great success in life!

Albeit well-intentioned, you've been wronged by a radical Leftist agenda with a herd mentality. Don't let them get away with this or they will be emboldened to do worse.
