The Westboro Baptist Church will be coming to Columbia on Monday Feb. 25 to protest outside Stephens College.
They cite Stephens’ policy of admitting non-binary and transgender women.
The church has a permit to protest on public property around Stephens College’s campus, but not on it.
The Columbia Police Department will have an officer monitoring the situation.
Community Relations Specialist Jefferey Pitts emphasized that CPD will be respecting everyone’s first amendment rights.
