Members of the Social Work Society and Students for a Democratic Society plan to meet on the sidewalk of Alumni Drive at 4:30 on Friday afternoon, prepared with hand-made signs, banners and chants.

“The reason I am so opposed to him is that he expresses the views of my homophobic family,” Amanda-Lynn Hill, junior majoring in Political Science, said. “He’s completely backwards.”

“Individuals who are not attending the event may otherwise congregate in areas surrounding the USF Sun Dome that are open to the general public so long as they do not interfere with the safety of the event, … or otherwise disrupt the licensed use of the facility,” according to the statement.
