This year, we will continue to live by our values and invite community leaders, who claim to welcome diversity, to do the same.

Our goals:

  1. Challenge bigotry at county fairs that invite vendors to sell and profit from Confederate flags and other racist merchandise

  2. Hold Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extensions responsible for partnering with fairs that allow the sale of racist merchandise, despite Cornell's stated commitment to diversity and inclusion

  3. Promote community dialog and education about race, racism, and the history and impact of colonialism on marginalized people through events and activities
