Why are the Fashion Institute of Technology and Breast Cancer Research Foundation taking money from human rights abuser Lev Leviev?
Adalah-NY's recent attention to LEVIEV's sponsorship of the Daphne Guinness exhibit at FIT and donations to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) has put Lev Leviev's settlement development back in the news. With UK Vogue, Women's Wear Daily, New York Magazine, and other media reporting on his companies' human rights violations, the pressure is on.
As a result of Adalah-NY's campaigns, organizations including UNICEF and Oxfam, as well as the UK and Norwegian governments, have all severed ties with Leviev. FIT and BCRF should also support human rights and international law.
Call the offices of FIT Museum Director Valerie Steele at (212) 217-4533 and FIT President Joyce Brown at (212) 217-4000. Tell them to SAY NO TO LEVIEV and disassociate the Daphne Guinness exhibit from him.
Call the office of BCRF President Myra Biblowit at (646) 497-2600. Tell her to SAY NO TO LEVIEV and sever BCRF's ties with him.
To increase effectiveness, please be polite and factual when calling.
