The law school proudly celebrates Women’s History month and encourages participation in the following events.
Feminine Hygiene & Professional Clothing Drive
2nd Floor Charles B. Sears Law Library, UB’s North Campus
In honor of Women's History Month and the inspiring documentary "The Janes," join us in supporting women in our community by donating unused or lightly worn professional clothing and feminine hygiene products.
All clothing donations will be given to the Career Services Office Clothes Closet, where they will be made available to students who may not have access to professional clothing for job interviews or internships. Your donations can make a significant impact on a student's life and help them achieve their career goals.
In addition to professional clothing donations, we are also accepting unopened packages of feminine hygiene products, which will be given to Planned Parenthood.
Let's come together as a community to celebrate Women's History Month and support women in need.
Organized by the Office of Student Affairs, Charles B. Sears Law Library, our DEI Office, and the WNY Chapter of the Women's Bar Association of New York.
