‘Never once have we advocated for the silence of those we disagree with’  Charlie Kirk, Candace Owens, Dave Rubin speak on conservative values

University of Connecticut students, faculty and residents of the state packed into the Student Union Theater amidst chaos and counter protests on Tuesday night to listen and argue with conservative Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and his guests Candace Owens and Dave Rubin.

The event, which required significant security around campus and prompted the university to close down parts of the Student Union for students and ticket-holders only, was intended to expose those in attendance to views they may not be accustomed to hearing, UConn TPUSA Chapter President Joseph Gatti, who invited the group to campus back in December, said.
