On Wednesday, December 13, Canisius was recognized for its continued partnership with Juneteenth Festival Inc.

Beginning in 2021, the university joined communities across the nation in commemorating this holiday. For the past three years, the campus has come together for a day of education, solidarity and service.  The goal is to inspire conversation and action in our ongoing work toward anti-racism, diversity, equity and inclusion.

Fatima Rodriguez Johnson and Bennie Williams (pictured above), co-chairs of the Juneteenth Recognition event, were on hand to accept the certificate of appreciation.
