Partnership for the Public Good welcomed 52 partners and 62 total community members to the first floor community room of the Market Arcade on December 15th, 2017. Their task? Vote on 21 different pitches to settle 2018’s “Community Agenda,” an amalgamation of policy planks that PPG will work on for the coming year.
The collective heard from PPG’s director, Sam Magavern, who disclosed the democratic ideals behind the process. “This is one of my favorite days of the year,” Magavern said.
The 21 pitches, ranging from “just preservation” of Buffalo’s historic architecture to the reform of torturous solitary confinement practices in Erie County, showcased a wide-reaching array of social activism.
Save the date: Join us in celebrating this year's 10 community agenda winners at PPG’s Community Agenda Rollout! We'll look toward the new year ahead on January 12th from 2pm to 4pm at the Merriweather Library.
