Hochul Reviews State’s Campus Sexual Assault Policy With Daemen Community

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul discussed a new Cuomo administration effort related to campus sexual assault prevention and policies at New York State’s private colleges at a March 5 meeting with members of the Daemen College community.

Hochul’s visit to Daemen was the first to take place at a Western New York private college as part of a statewide tour to talk about elements of the proposed legislation. With this, a new state policy implemented in December at SUNY campuses would be extended to include private colleges statewide so that uniform procedures and guidelines are in place at both private and public institutions.

Maxine Waters issues statement on Fifty's Anniversary of "Bloody Sunday"

Over this past weekend Maxine Waters, serving California in the 43rd District (D), made a statement in reference to the civil rights and the half decade anniversary of the Selma civil rights incident.

This weekend serves as the 50th anniversary of Sellma, “known as “Bloody Sunday”, where African-American protestors crossing a bridge in Selma were beaten by State of Alabama troopers. This incident was a turning stone in the fight for voting rights and paved the way for the landmark for the Voting Rights of 1965.

Maxine Waters’ statement is as follows, “Though it’s important to remember the Selma Voting Rights Movement every year, given the recent erosion of voting rights and other hard-fought civil rights victories, this year’s events have an even greater significance. After the many gains following Bloody Sunday, there is still work to do and challenges to address.

Health Care Infrastructure, Global Response Needed to Fight Ebola, Daemen Expert Panel Says

A strong public health infrastructure and international aid are crucial to containing the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, a panel of experts said at a discussion held last week at Daemen College.

“The appropriate infrastructure and control strategy to contain this disease is not in place where the outbreak is at its worst in West Africa,” said Erie County Health Commissioner Dr. Gale Burstein. “The level of global response will determine how quickly the disease can be kept from spreading or stopped and we must make sure the intensive medical care required reaches these patients.”

A capacity crowd turned out for Daemen’s timely Ebola panel discussion, which also included Dr. Joseph Sahr Sankoh, Daemen associate professor of political science and African affairs, and Anthony Saysay, a native Liberian.
