Penn State Ukrainian Society To Host ‘We Are Ukraine’ Rally March 3
The Penn State Ukrainian Society will host another rally on Thursday, March 3, to voice support for Ukraine amid conflict in eastern Europe.
The rally will stretch from 5 to 7 p.m. in front of Old Main. There, the group will discuss fundraising efforts, celebrate Ukrainian culture, and hold a candlelight vigil for the nation’s people just about one week after Russia invaded Ukraine.
Last week, the Penn State Ukrainian Society, a student club, organized a smaller rally in front of the Allen Street Gates for a similar purpose. Over the past week, the organization held meetings to teach songs and make signs in preparation for this week’s event.
The organization isn’t the only group showing support for Ukraine in State College. On Monday, the Borough of State College Municipal Building was lit up in the Ukrainian flag’s blue and gold to show support. Penn State President Eric Barron also released a statement showing support to those affected by the conflict.
