Welcome to the Just Mathematics Collective newsletter.  This is our 
(roughly) monthly round-up of news about our campaigns and activities, 
suggestions for how you can help, and reading we've found useful 


Following the January 2023 action against NSA recruitment at the Joint 
Math Meetings, the AMS agreed to meet with some of the participants in 
the action to discuss NSA recruitment.  Instead of engaging seriously 
with the community's concerns, the AMS doubled down by adopting a 
restrictive policy against demonstrations at the JMM.  At this month's 
JMM in San Francisco, here is how the community responded:

Joint Math
Meetings #MathMinusMilitarism" on the side of the building directly 
across from the Moscone
Center's main entrance at the JMM 2024.
