Community Groups to Unveil their Policy Agenda for 2019

The Partnership for the Public Good (PPG) unites 284 community groups working for a better Buffalo – ranging from large social service agencies like the YWCA to neighborhood groups like the Masten Block Club Coalition, and from arts organizations like El Museo to environmental advocates like the Crossroads Collective.

Each fall Partnership for the Public Good (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 protecting and expanding voting rights, implementing alternatives to arrest and community policing in Buffalo, expanding childcare subsidies, and improving public transit.

This year’s public roll-out of the Community Agenda will take place on Friday, January 18th at 2pm, at the Frank E. Merriweather Library Auditorium, 1324 Jefferson Ave, Buffalo.

Speakers will include Duncan Kirkwood from the Buffalo Urban League, Danielle Johnson from the Open Buffalo Justice and Opportunity Coalition, Sheri Scavone from the WNY Women’s Foundation, Lynn Magdol from Citizens for Regional Transit, and more. The event will be opened and closed by poet Jillian Hanesworth.

The event is open to the public.
