Baylor facilitates 'reparative conversations' ahead of Ben Shapiro speech
- Officials at Baylor University are intervening in a conflict between Baylor’s chapter of the Young America’s Foundation (YAF) and an unofficial campus LGBT rights group, hosting a mediation between the two.
- Present at the meeting will be an officer from the university’s equity office, although the university says her presence is in relation to her mediation qualifications, rather than her role as an equity investigator.
- YAF alleges that the meeting is a result of pressure from the LGBT group on the university surrounding an upcoming speech by Ben Shapiro hosted by YAF, but the LGBT group claims it called the meeting due to other ongoing conflicts between the group
