MOVING TO FRONT FROM SEPT. 26--see FINAL UPDATE
...courtesy of Jenny Saul (Sheffield) and colleagues involved with the GCC. This seems to me not to involve the problematic features of the other petition, to clearly present the core objectives of the GCC, and thus to warrant a strong showing of support from the philosophical community. I encourage all philosophy readers to sign. (Please note that to sign, you will have to hit the "sign now" key two times--the first time will take you to a page with your signatory information that you've just entered, and then you hit "sign now" again to confirm.)
UPDATE: 48 hours and almost 650 signatures. If you have not yet signed, please consider doing so, and joining your colleagues endorsing the GCC, including Helen Beebee, Ned Block, Roger White, Susan Brison, Michael Rea, Ian Proops, Galen Strawson, Scott Sturgeon, Adam Elga, Carrie Ichikawa Jenkins, Debra Satz, Donald Rutherford, Peter Carruthers, David Estlund, Ted Sider, David Chalmers, Anthony Appiah, Elisabeth Lloyd, Rae Langton, Stephen Darwall, David Papineau, Thomas Hurka, Michael Bergmann, Lynne Rudder Baker, Gideon Rosen, Elizabeth Harman, Kenny Easwaran, C.D.C. Reeve, Daniel Garber, Duncan Pritchard, Rebecca Kukla, Mark Richard, Andy Egan, Matti Eklund, Ursula Coope, Benjamin Morison, Victor Caston, Peter Vallentyne, Adam Pautz, Hilary Kornblith, Kieran Setiya, Margaret Atherton, David Brink, David Rosenthal, and David Copp, among many others!
ANOTHER (9/26): Another hundred signatures over the last seven hours, including Stephen Yablo, Juliet Floyd, John Dupre, Huw Price, Elisabeth Camp, Ned Hall, Aldo Antonelli, and many others!
A FINAL UPDATE (10/2): Almost 900 now, but the goal is a thousand, so please help us get there by adding your name. Since the last update Crispin Wright, Hannah Ginsborg, Robert Batterman, Hartry Field, and Jenann Ismael, among other distinguished philosophers, signed. Please join them. And more importantly, make an affirmative effort to avoid organizing all-male conferences and edited volumes, and so contribute to gender equity in the profession.
