Tomorrow night, Tuesday, September 26, two nationally recognized organizers of the Women’s March on Washington will speak at Canisius as part of the William H. Fitzpatrick Chair of Political Science Lecture Series.
National co-chairs Tamika D. Mallory and Bob Bland will take the stage at the Montante Cultural Center at 7:00 p.m. for a lecture entitled “Building Trust: Organizing for Social Justice.”
Mallory and Bland were two of four national co-chairs of the Women’s March held in Washington, D.C. on January 21, 2017. The march mobilized five million people in an effort to call attention to a world that is equitable, tolerant, just and safe, and one in which the human rights and dignity of each person are protected.
