Mike Pence at Graduation

On May 21, Notre Dame students will stage a walkout during the commencement exercises in solidarity with all members of the Notre Dame community affected by the policies advocated by U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence.

Watch our video of student responses here, and #walkoutND

Pence’s policies have marginalized our vulnerable sisters and brothers for their religion, skin color, or sexual orientation. We will walk out in silence, with respect for the human dignity of those with whom we disagree and with an invitation to the rest of the community to build an inclusive future together.

Press Release (for further information, please see our media page)

Please click here to join our Facebook event, and walk out with us! If you are not a graduate, please respect our graduation, and join the community protest off campus!
