Stand in Solidarity Week, taking place this week, is a collaboration between USA Justice, USA Diversity, Campus Ministry, Women and Gender Studies Club and Peace Action Canisius. Each day this week there will be programming that asks the campus community to engage with issues impacting marginalized communities ranging from migration to racial equity to access that girls have to education. Check out the poster for details and consider joining in one or more of the discussions!
