Notre Dame students to stage walkout over commencement speaker Mike Pence

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence will take the stage at Notre Dame University’s commencement to address the recent graduates — but some of the university’s students are making it clear he won’t have their support.

Student activist group We Stand For is organizing a protest against Pence during Sunday’s commencement exercises, in which participants will walk out of the ceremony when Pence begins speaking to stand in solidarity with those affected by his damaging policies.

“For us, there’s nothing that could be more in the spirit of the university and the university mission than to stand up for human dignity and the most vulnerable among us,” We Stand For organizer Luis Miranda said in an interview.
