On June 28th 2011 PUSH Buffalo Director of Organizing Eric Walker appeared on “The Public Good” radio show. The Public Good is a show hosted by Sam Magavern of The Partnership for the Public Good (PPG).
The PPG is a grass roots organization dedicated to fostering better approaches towards correcting the social and economic ills that have plagued Buffalo NY. The show airs every Tuesday afternoon from 1-1:30pm on WUFO AM 1080 and features a member of the community working on progressive issues.
On this particular show Mr. Walker discusses PUSH Buffalo’s involvement in what is called Buffalo’s Green Development Zone (GDZ). The GDZ is a two city block area located on Buffalo’s West Side on Massachusetts Avenue. The GDZ aims to fight blight by redeveloping/weatherizing older housing stock, rebirthing a city park, and in the process create living wage green jobs. PUSH Buffalo recently won an international competition for their work in this area. Click the link below to listen to the show online.
