Help bring Black Lives Matter Road Mural to SUNY Fredonia campus

"Help the SUNY Fredonia students of the Black Student Union and other student activists bring a Black Lives Matter Road Mural to our campus. The students of SUNY Fredonia wants to create this mural as a sign that the new administration of our campus is willing to stand up for the Black community at our university. We want this road to be a significant start to a series of changes to our campus to help foster a more welcoming environment for Black students.

The time for acknowledgment is here! We are doing this not only for the Black students of Fredonia. We want to bring this mural to campus to remember the lives that have been lost due to racial injustice in this country.

Help us make SUNY Fredonia a school that creates change!" -- Tim Snider, SUNY Fredonia Student
