We are pleased to have Frederic Pearson, Director of the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies and Professor of Political Science at Wayne State University, as our speaker.

Shut Down Shapiro at Rackham Auditorium

Date: 
Tue, Mar 12, 2019 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

Right-wing bigot and climate-change-denier Ben Shapiro is coming to campus to speak and "participate in a Q&A". Among other things, the theme of these events which he has done often in the past, is to belittle and misgender LGBTQ people, to insist that universities are "sponsors of the militant homosexual agenda", and to spew Christian-conservative propaganda on college campuses.

Ben Shapiro is not welcome at U of M or in Ann Arbor.
