DEMAND UWS TO RELOCATE MATT WALSH EVENT

It has come to our attention that the University of Wisconsin Superior is hosting extremist, right-wing individual Matt Walsh to come speak on campus. Matt Walsh has repeatedly targeted Transgender individuals, First Nations Communities, women, and other BIPOC individuals. After consulting with higher ed administration, we have been told that they "cannot do anything" in canceling or relocating the event off of campus due to 'freedom of speech.' 

However, we are aware that 'Freedom of Speech' does not condone hate speech and does not come without consequences. We are asking folks to sign this petition in support of our goal to move this event off of our campus and to show solidarity with the above-mentioned communities.
