PUSH Buffalo and the Crossroads Collective helped host the New Economy Coalition’s CommonBound conference July 8-10 in Buffalo. Buffalo hosted CommonBound’s largest conference yet, bringing over 900 movement builders to the Queen City. The conference offered the unique opportunity to learn from leaders and change agents across the nation and to build a community of learning long into the future.
While we had so many incredible people on our home turf, we made sure to share the major accomplishments that we have made in Buffalo through Buffalo presenters, Buffalo-specific workshop content, an event featuring Buffalo-based artists and performers, and tours of Buffalo that introduced CommonBound participants to the innovative, community-based economic solutions alive in the Buffalo area.
As hundreds of community members, leaders, and organizations learned from one another and gained the skills to become more effective in achieving a just, equitable, and sustainable nation, we will remember CommonBound as a pivotal moment in drawing key sectors of the new economy movement together.
