Our events are open to all students and members of the public. The freedom which allowed two trans* students at the campus free speech debate (February 23) to deliver their views on the York Union, life on campus and the issue at hand is the very same with which we extend to all members of our audience.
We are committed to free expression and open debate for all. The York Union is a politically neutral, student-run organisation. We actively encourage everyone – especially those who disagree with any of our speakers – to come and challenge the views they hear by asking questions. Time will always be set aside for the audience’s opinions to be heard.
The York Union added that it does not support any form of online harassment, regardless of the target and the identity of those who are responsible for it.
Established in 2013, The York Union is an independent organisation dedicated to providing discussions and debate for the benefit of York’s community. It is opposed to a no-platform policy. The York Union’s website can be found here.
