Dear Members of the Amherst Community,
In last week’s message, I said I would provide the community with an update on the invitation extended to former Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, by the College’s Republican Club. The club has confirmed that Mr. Sessions has accepted its invitation to speak at Amherst next week. The visit is supported by funding donated to the club by external sources and by the Young America’s Foundation, which is the event’s sponsor. The republican club members are event hosts. The College has responsibility for security, as it always must, and has decided that the event will be open only to Amherst College faculty, staff, and students. It will be a ticketed event with one ticket per Amherst College ID. ID’s will be checked at the door.
