From Campus Reform:

The College of William and Mary’s Student Assembly recently introduced a bill to provide $7,550 for a Black Lives Matter conference, nearly 14 times the amount it allocated for its Suicide Prevention Act.

The Flat Hat, a student newspaper, reports that a “Black Lives Matter Conference Act” was introduced at the student government’s Tuesday meeting, seeking funding for an event that would feature speeches from several local BLM activists.
