A peace and social justice event will be held on Monday, February 27 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in Science Hall, Room 1013B. Two Canisius students, Brianna Gibney ’17 and Alie Iwanenko ’17, will present their research topics. The event, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by Peace Action-Canisius and the Western New York Peace Center.
Gibney’s thesis focuses on universal healthcare in Central America. It includes an assessment of the healthcare policies in Costa Rica and Nicaragua and an investigation into the role of political will in the successful implementation of universal healthcare policy.
Iwanenko’s thesis focuses on sustainability and access to clean water sources and sanitation. She compares Lake Erie and Guanabara Bay and explores issues shared by the two bodies of water.
There will also be a discussion of the recent increase in federal immigration raids locally.
