Creating a Strong Neighborhood


Dear PUSH Members & Neighbors,

April usually signals that spring is just around the corner. It certainly felt that way while we were near the Mason Dixon in Washington DC last month with community organizations from around the country. Read on for more details.



Populism 2015 – People Planet First 

This was the reason we were raising money to go to Washington DC two months ago. We took more than 50 members to DC May 18th-21st. When you travel you find out that people from everywhere are struggling with the same issues. We continued to build solidarity with organizations like PUSH from places all over the country. Do you want to be a member of PUSH Buffalo? It costs just $5, and you can sign up at our next monthly meeting May 23rd, 3 PM at 271 Grant St, Buffalo NY

Last month on April 15th, 2015 organizers in Buffalo hosted a local Fight For $15 (raise the minimum wage to $15) event in conjunction with similar events held at the same time all over the country.
