Watch these Notre Dame grads walk out of Mike Pence’s commencement speech
A human rights advocacy group in Indiana called We StaND For announced last week that it would stage a walkout during Notre Dame’s graduation ceremony on Sunday as soon as Vice President Mike Pence began giving his commencement speech.
On Sunday when Pence stepped up to the podium, WNDU tweeted out video of a large group of students doing exactly that, taking their belongings and peacefully and silently leaving Notre Dame Stadium.
While the students who walked out were only a small percentage of the graduates and their families who were in attendance at the ceremony, We StaND For considered the protest a victory.
With 100+ participants #WalkoutND was a wonderful success. Thank you all for the support!— We StaND For (@WeStandForND) May 21, 2017
