tw: sexual assault

Since 2012, the Berkeley Forum has hosted speakers with the mission of bringing discourse to the Berkeley community. One of the policies we maintain in accordance with this mission is to not provide a platform for speakers who have been accused of sexual harassment and/or assault.

Recently, we were made aware of allegations of sexual assault against one of our speakers, Max Temkin, scheduled to speak on March 20th. As such, the Berkeley Forum has decided to rescind the invitation and cancel this event.

Our organization apologizes for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.

If you are seeking resources regarding sexual harassment and/or assault, Path to CARE provides confidential support on campus.
