Beyond the Buffalo Billion: Grassroots Strategies for Economic Empowerment

Beyond the Buffalo Billion: Grassroots Strategies for Economic Empowerment

Mon, November 9, 20157:00 PM

Sometimes when you begin to scratch below the surface of something, you can begin to get a better view of the whole picture.

Much has been said about the "Buffalo billion" and what its impact will be on our local community here in Buffalo NY. But, does it mean anything, and who is really benefitting from this? Who wants to drive down the "high road" to local economic development or engage in economic, grassroots strategies that are lifting up our "poor, downtrodden and huddled masses"? And, who wants to drive down the "low road" to local economic development, a road full of unecessary tolls, obstacles and pot holes - the road to nowhere for many of us?

Join us for a video screening and panel discussion on Monday November 9th, 7pm at Hallwalls Art Center, 341 Delaware Ave, Buffalo NY. Writers, real estate developers, advocates, and public officials will be in attendance. For more info contact Clarke at PUSH Buffalo, 716-884-0356 or clarke@pushbuffalo.org
