We are currently engaged in organizing a speaking tour titled, the "Green Power Speaking Tour" around the green jobs and sustainable neighborhoods movement sweeping the nation.
Recently, PUSH was fortunate enough to be featured on 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' when one of our board members and community activists, Delores Powell, was chosen to receive a new, green home. Through that platform, we were able to showcase how Buffalo and PUSH are at the forefront of the nation-wide sustainable community movement.
The Green Power Tour speakers include Buffalo Bills linebacker Chris Draft, a 12 year NFL veteran, and Extreme Makeover star Delores Powell. Other speakers include Myo Thant, a prominent international human rights activist from Burma now living in Buffalo, Eric Walker, a founder of PUSH Buffalo, and Michael Gainer, the founder of Buffalo ReUse, the nation's leading organization in "green demolition" and building materials salvage..
