Community Agenda for Partnership for the Public Good

January 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

1324 Jefferson Ave- Frank E. Merriweather Jr. Library

From the Facebook Event Page: “Each fall PPG leads a democratic process among its partners to determine the Community Agenda for the coming year. This year’s Agenda addresses important topics such as the reform of solitary confinement in Erie County, certifying Buffalo as a “welcoming city,” investing in the Fruit Belt Community Land Trust, and making the NFTA work for Buffalo.

This year’s public roll-out of the Community Agenda will take place on Friday, January 12th at 2pm, at the Frank E. Merriweather Library Auditorium, 1324 Jefferson Ave, Buffalo.

Speakers will include Jerome R. Wright from the Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement, India Walton from Open Buffalo, Andrew Marcum from the Center for Self Advocacy, and more.

Performance artist Brian Jay will open the proceedings with an excerpt from Free Fred Brown!, an Ujima Theater Company Just Transition play, and poet Jillian Hanesworth will close with an original piece.
