UC Berkeley officials on Thursday reversed their decision to cancel conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s appearance at the university, but have rescheduled it from next week to May 2, according to a statement from the university.
Coulter’s speech on immigration will be held at an “appropriate, protectable venue,” the university said. The university did not disclose the location of the speech. But the university said it had advised Coulter’s representatives and the Berkeley CollegeRepublicans, which organized the April 27 Coulter event, that the speaking engagement would take place next month.
