During this round (Octafinals in Public Forum at the Tournament of Champions), Quarry Lane AS (Allen Abbott and Ahana Sen) conceded to Millburn CZ (James Chen and Brian Zhu) to have a discussion about both structural violence involving women under the H4 visa system and issues of gender inequality in debate. I highly recommend watching, as this discussion highlights both the more visible issues (power dynamics in round, odd comments from judges, etc.) and the sometimes exclusive atmosphere of Public Forum as a whole. This is the round that has begun the conversation regarding discrimination and inequality in Public Forum, and inspired us to create this website.
