Mark Talley, founder of Agents for Advocacy, spoke to students, faculty and staff on Monday, May 1.

Talley discussed how the events at Tops on Jefferson Ave. on May 14, 2022 impacted him personally and professionally.  Talley lost his mother that day and he channeled his anger and grief into creating opportunities for individuals to support their communities in hopes that something like this would never happen again. He was authentic and vulnerable during his conversation, and answered several questions from the audience following the discussion.

Talley posted about his time at Canisius on his social media platforms as seen here:
