Bill Maher has been invited to speak at the UC Berkeley Fall 2014 commencement ceremony. This invitation is an extremely offensive and misguided decision that must be stopped. Bringing a bigot and racist to speak at a University commencement will make people of all faiths and backgrounds uncomfortable and feel unsafe. This is not an issue of differing opinions rather, an issue of campus climate. By inviting someone like Maher to speak the University is perpetuating a dangerous and unsafe environment for students. Help voice the student body’s concerns by emailing and calling University Relations.

Email and call Helena Weiss-Duman and Chancellor Dirks! Helena is the Director of External Relations. She has been making the final decisions on all matters related to the 2014 commencement.
