Canisius College Sit In Against Layoffs
July 23, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
At Canisius College, 2001 Main St, Buffalo 14208; outside of Bagan Hall and Churchill Tower. Come show your support for the 90+ Canisius College staff and faculty who the administration and the Board of Trustees are trying to lay off. The college is claiming it is inevitable due to budget cuts, but in 2020 Canisius has twice as many people at vice-presidential levels as it had in 2008. If the College were so concerned about its financial wellbeing, why fire professors, its productive force, rather than administrators—its primary financial ballast?
It is not too late to change the course of action! We as alumni and allies need to speak out and let the college know that we will not let this happen!
This event will be a peaceful sit in outside of Bagan Hall and Churchill Tower. Please WEAR A MASK and sit 6 FEET APART. Bring a sign, some chalk, and make your voice heard!
This will be the first of a two part protest on the proposed budget cuts by the Board of Trustees.
