The Federation of Italian-American Societies of Western New York conducted a rally at the Christopher Columbus Statue, so as to express their solidarity with the preservation of statues and memorials, and sustainment of the holiday.

The Federation's primary mission is to propagate the rich history, culture and the contributions of Italian-Americans of our nation.

From the Federations website at: http://fiaswny.com/
"Our Federation, currently in its 109th year, is the umbrella organization for Italian Societies and organizations throughout Western New York. Our purpose is to promote understanding and appreciation of the Italian culture and the contributions and achievements"
