Buffalo Commons Workshop: Making Change in Buffalo: Learning from Success

Learn from successful efforts in the past decade that have worked to make Buffalo more just and sustainable.

How do you go about changing public policies? How do you organize residents, communicate effectively through traditional and social media, and build relationships with government officials?  Learn from experienced advocates about what techniques worked as they strove for systemic change: 

  • India Walton: Organizing the Fruit Belt
  • Justin Booth: Bringing Complete Streets to Buffalo
  • Jessica Bauer Walker: Healthier Public Schools
  • Sam Magavern: Living Wages for Workers
  • Lou Jean Fleron: a Waterfront for the People

Free and open to the public.
