Feminists for Peace and Barack Obama

In early 2008 Rosalyn Baxandall for State University of New York/Old Westbury signed a petition circulated by Feminists for Peace and Barack Obama[6].

In the coming elections, it is important to remember that war and peace are as much \"women\'s issues\" as are health, the environment, and the achievement of educational and occupational equality. Because we believe that all of these concerns are not only fundamental but closely intertwined, this Tuesday we will be casting our vote for Senator Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

Progressives for Obama

In 2009 Rosalyn Baxandall was listed as a signer of the Progressives for Obama website and as affiliated with American Studies, SUNY Old Westbury.[7]

"Support Bill Ayers"

In the run up to the U.S. presidential elections, Ayers had come under considerable media scrutiny, sparked by his relationship to presidential candidate Barack Obama.

We write to support our colleague Professor William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who is currently under determined and sustained political attack...
We, the undersigned, stand on the side of education as an enterprise devoted to human inquiry, enlightenment, and liberation. We oppose the demonization of Professor William Ayers.

Rosalyn Baxandall of the SUNY Old Westbury signed the statement.[8]
