Last month, Indiana lawmakers voted to approve a budget with amendments that specifically blocks Indiana University from using state appropriations to support the Kinsey Institute. This unprecedented action takes aim at the very foundation of academic freedom and stifles critical research on sexuality, gender, relationships, and reproduction. Since 1947, the Kinsey Institute has been an international thought leader in providing an unbiased and apolitical scientific approach to human sexuality. In this time of divisive politics and the rise of disinformation, Kinsey Institute research, education, and historical preservation are more important than ever.
We are asking our friends to amplify and share your support for the Kinsey Institute.
Help us defend the right to conduct sex research.
Endowments and estate gifts are a meaningful way to show lasting commitment to the study of human sexuality.
