FIRE wrote a letter to the Stanford Administration
An event next month at Stanford University that will discuss traditional marriage and family values has sparked a free speech debate on campus between a student group hosting the discussion and LGBT advocates who claim it includes discriminatory speakers.
Stanford University has “found the funds” to pay for a 10-person security detail for a student organization’s upcoming conservative conference after initially asking the group to front thousands of dollars just two weeks prior to the event. Between a last minute retraction of funding and imposing security fees, the monetary hits just kept coming for Stanford’s Anscombe Society (SAS). After being denied funding by the Graduate Student Council (GSC) to help cover the cost of the group’s conference, Stanford decided to propose a $5,600 security fee in light of the back-and-forth controversy between SAS and several LGBT student groups. The fee will cover 10 security personnel for the entirety of the day at which 120 guests are expected, according to SAS.
