Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo

Increase Racial/Ethnic Equity

As the regional economy has declined, Buffalo has struggled with increasing segregation and a widening income gap. People of color in the Buffalo Niagara region are disproportionately poor and clustered in the urban centers. In our role as a community foundation, together with our clients we are uniquely positioned to address the complex, structural and attitudinal issues that contribute to these inequities.

In 2015, the Community Foundation invited civic leaders to advance racial equity in our region by joining the Greater Buffalo Racial Equity Roundtable and the Roundtable released an important report in late 2016 that details the opportunities our community stands to gain when we achieve racial equity.
