陈刚教授女儿呼吁大家捐款支持

作者:Karen Chen

你们中许多人都知道,我父亲因涉嫌在能源部拨款申请中涉嫌与中国有关系而在特朗普总统任期的最后一天被起诉。但是,鉴于围绕他在中国或与中国学者进行的研究和学术活动的宣传,这种起诉是荒谬的。他被指控未能报告的许多所谓的非法“活动”都是平凡而认真的努力,例如写推荐信,以帮助他人。我父亲一生致力于全人类的教育和可持续技术的发展。30多年前,他以坚定不移的追求美国梦的决心移居美国。

我父亲决心与这些指控抗争,因为它们对广大学术界和所有华裔美国人构成危险。麻省理工学院已同意支付我父亲的法律费用,但毫无疑问,这将给我们家庭带来超出该协议的额外费用。

我们非常感谢您的帮助。如果我们很幸运能够在漫长的过程结束前拥有任何未使用的资金,则将其捐赠给处理类似案件的适当慈善组织。

As many of you know, my dad was indicted on the last full day of Trump’s presidency for allegedly lying about ties to China on a Department of Energy grant application. However, this indictment is absurd given the publicity surrounding his research and academic activities conducted in China or with Chinese academics. Many of the allegedly illicit “activities” he supposedly failed to report were mundane and earnest efforts to help others such as writing letters of recommendation. My dad has devoted his life to education and the development of sustainable technologies for all of mankind. He moved to the US over 30 years ago with little other than a relentless determination to pursue the American dream.

My dad is resolved to fight these charges because of the danger they represent to the broader academic community and all Chinese Americans. While MIT has agreed to pay my father’s legal expenses, there will undoubtedly be additional expenses for our family that extend beyond this agreement.

We greatly appreciate any help. If we are fortunate enough to have any unused funds by the end of this long process, they will be donated to an appropriate charitable organization that handles similar cases.
