A growing number of University of Michigan students are voicing their concerns over the possibility of white supremacist Richard Spencer speaking at their school.
Multiple student groups have organized a week of events aimed at stopping Spencer from coming to the university.
Included among them is a "Speak Out" demonstration on the University Diag happening Tuesday at 6 p.m. and a "Student Strike" on Thursday.
The University of Michigan has not yet made a decision on whether Spencer will be allowed to speak on campus.
By law, it is not allowed to refuse a speaker based solely on the presumed content of their speech, but it can refuse one if the university determines it can't ensure safety of the public.
