Join us on WUFO 1080AM at 1pm every Tuesday afternoon for The Public Good! This week we will be talking with Tara J. Melish, Professor of Law and Director of the Buffalo Human Rights Center, University at Buffalo School of Law about Cities for CEDAW-Buffalo.

Cities for CEDAW-Buffalo is a broad coalition of allied organizations and individuals committed to ensuring the human rights and equality principles of the UN Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (“CEDAW” or the “Women’s Equality Treaty”) are incorporated into all city policy and decision making in Buffalo. Following the lead of other cities across the nation, Cities for CEDAW is working toward the adoption of a city ordinance—the Buffalo CEDAW Ordinance—that creates regular reporting and planning processes in city departments and agencies designed to ensure that all city policies, programs and practices proactively address gender discrimination.
