Join us for a week of promoting the 
Black Communities in Buffalo! 

Each day there will be a different event to help the Black community. We want to educate our citizens and advocate for the much needed change in Buffalo's city government. On Saturday, July 11th, we will highlight the number of organizations that are designed to help the black and brown people in our city. To get more information on each day please click on the dates below. We look forward to seeing you! 

*You MUST wear a mask for all events and by coming to our events you give us permission to use photos taken on our website and social media*

July 4th



We want to do our part in helping the community by having a peaceful protest to show our city government that we want change and we NEED it now. Please be aware that a protest is not the only thing we need to do. This is the beginning and we have a long way to go but it has to start NOW. It is time to take our city back and make Buffalo a great place for ALL of it's citizens.

This is a list of petitions that will help people around Buffalo and around the country. It is extremely important to continue to fill out as many petitions as you can because it shows our government that we are concerned about these issues and they are important to us as a community.

For the city of Buffalo we want to rename Columbus Park and get the Christopher Columbus statue removed.

July 7th


We know that the pandemic has affected our city and country in a tremendous way. There are a number of people who are unable to provide for their families due to the loss of their jobs or other COVID-19 related problems. We encourage you to take advantage of the different organizations in Buffalo that are here to help you!

Please volunteer at any of the food pantries listed as well!

We have partnered up with FeedMoreWNY and they have a list of food pantries around the Western New York area.
