State of the City

March 29, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

(Central Public Library). While the dominant narrative says that “Buffalo is back” and the “State of the City” is strong, it’s not the story that many people experience on a regular basis. Historically marginalized and vulnerable populations, including communities of color, poor and working-class families, and LGBTQ folx are under constant threat of being displaced from their homes and neighborhoods. Organized by the Crossroads Collective

This event will focus on real solutions to our city’s most urgent challenges. During the address, the OUR CITY coalition and residents of Buffalo will speak to the need to fully fund public transit and public schools, safety for undocumented immigrants and other vulnerable populations, affordable housing, as well as community control of land, investment in worker cooperatives and other economic development strategies that promote localism and collective ownership.

If you’d like to be a speaker, please contact Harper at [email protected] This event is free and open to the public. Youth encouraged to participate!
