Partnership for the Public Good

| December 20 2022

Partnership for the Public Good is a community-based think tank that builds a more just, sustainable, and culturally vibrant Buffalo Niagara through action-oriented research, policy development, and citizen engagement, together with our network of 325 partner organizations. Before and since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we have worked to advance health equity programs and policies that protect tenants and improve housing conditions; that use public land, green space, and vacant lots for public benefit—such as food growing, affordable housing, community gardens; that expand language access for New Americans across government and health services; that improve water equity by ending water shut-offs in the City of Buffalo and forgiving water bill debt; that prevent violence and invest in community-led safety; and more. We work toward these policies across three levels of government – the City of Buffalo, Erie County, and New York State, with our priorities informed and selected by an annual democratic process with our partners.
