BEFORE ADDING THIS TOUR TO YOUR SCHEDULE, PLEASE NOTE: Registration for tours is not included in general conference registration.  In order to attend a tour you must register for it here.

The Community First Alliance (CFA), comprised of a diverse array of stakeholders, including Fruit Belt residents, entrepreneurs, social and economic justice advocates and labor leaders, is currently leading a campaign to negotiate a Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) with the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC), ground zero for current economic development in the region. The CFA has been a champion for “high road” economics that put people and neighborhoods first.

It’s important that Buffalo has a comeback for all, not just the few. If you care about rents going up, come on this tour. If you care about strategies to create economic opportunity without displacement, come.  If you want to know what decision-making at the local level looks like, come.  If you want to see and support longtime residents of one of Buffalo’s most historic and diverse neighborhoods, come. We’d love to have you.

All bus tours will depart at 2pm at Cleveland Circle and return before 4pm.
