College of William and Mary: Suppression of Affirmative Action Bake Sale

Category: Free Speech
Schools: The College of William & Mary

A student group critical of William and Mary’s race-based affirmative action policies held an affirmative action bake sale parodying the school’s policies. The student group contacted FIRE after the administration decided to censor the group’s activity. After receiving much criticism in the media, the administration relented and allowed a second bake sale, but would not admit any wrongdoing.
