Balayla Ahmad, an African American Muslim woman from Connecticut, had dreams of becoming a chiropractor at the University of Bridgeport. Unfortunately, her dreams were eventually shattered after Balayla was accused of being a terrorist and dismissed from the school.
While Balayla was attending the University of Bridgeport, the same man sexually harassed her several times. When she tried to report her attacker, the university ignored her complaints.
Upon hearing of Balayla's attempts to report sexual harassment, Balayla's attacker made the counter claim that she was a terrorist.The university promptly dismissed her.
Sadly, Balayla has become a victim of racism and sexual harassment and as a result is now a scapegoat for "terrorism." Don't let the university take away her right to an education because of unfounded claims. Tell the University of Bridgeport to re-enroll Balayla and give her a fair trial!
Dear Allen Cook,
Balayla Ahmad is an African American Muslim student who was sexually harassed on your campus. However, instead of listening to her constant pleas and reports, she was repeatedly ignored.
In addition, Balayla's attacker has also made unfounded claims connecting Balayla to terrorist activities that have resulted in her dismissal from the university. Balayla has done absoultely nothing wrong and yet she has lost her means to an education.

Balaya is clearly the victim of racism as well as sexual harassment. I urge you to re-enroll Balayla Ahmad back into the University of Bridgeport and to give her a fair trial to prosecute her attacker and to defend herself against the "terrorist" allegations made against her.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
