Former Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa next month during a free event announced Tuesday.

The appearance is being hosted by UA's Young Americans for Freedom, a chapter of an organization generally comprised of conservative and libertarian college students on campuses across the U.S.

The YAF announced the event Tuesday and said Pence would spend an hour on stage at the University of Alabama Student Center for remarks and a Q&A session on April 11th.

Doors will open at 5:30, but tickets will be required for entry.

The event is free and open to the public, with tickets available for students, faculty and all others on Eventbrite now.

The appearance is being billed as "Saving America from the Woke Left."


Pence is widely expected to seek the Republican Party's nomination to run for President in 2024, although he has not yet officially declared his intention to do so.

Against his former running mate Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and a pool that may include a dozen others, Pence's fight for that nomination will be an uphill battle.
