Annual Disinvitation Dinner

Sunday, April 15, 2018 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Now here’s an unusual invitation. The William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale has announced its “First Annual Disinvitation Dinner,” scheduled for April 15 in New York City. The plan is to regularly honor distinguished guests who were invited to speak at American universities and then subsequently disinvited because their views did not comport with progressive campus orthodoxy.

Columnist George Will, who will keynote this year’s dinner in Manhattan, was disinvited last year from California’s Scripps College. He earned the ire of the academic left by questioning Obama Administration statistics on campus sexual offenses and suggesting that overly broad definitions of assault trivialize actual crimes.
