Doctors Against Racism and Anti-Semitism (DARA) is a grass roots organization of health care professionals whose activities are directed at opposing racism and anti-Semitism in the medical realm specifically and academic environments generally. It seeks to ensure that medical publications maintain the standards of verifiability expected of scientific literature in avoiding promulgation of subjective articles aimed at vilifying any race, nation or country.
DARA will strive for the same ideals in academic institutions and encourage an atmosphere free of extremism, harassment, intimidation and coercion. It will oppose the actions of tenured academics who promote their personal, political or philosophical agendas to a captive student body if these agendas fall outside the subject matter which they are responsible to teach. DARA will pursue these goals in concert with like-minded organizations both nationally and internationally.
