Student Yai Nikos protests at the Diversity and Inclusion Conference on March 1. The conference was held as a way to explore diversity.

Student protests at diversity conference

Yai Nikos, a member of Webster’s Association of African American Collegians (AAAC), posted on Facebook earlier in the day that she would protest the event due to the absence of a black speaker for the Gender Entitlement topic. Nikos stood by the podium holding a sign stating “Black Trans Voices Matter.”
