pushbuffalo Do you know about our School 77 campaign? School 77 is a VACANT public school building on Normal Ave. To ensure that this HUGE asset doesn't fall into the WRONG hands, we're having a community planning meeting on September 10th, 6 PM at Our Lady of Loretto at 301 14th St. Around the future of the bldg. Have you RSVP'd yet? If not, why not?! Huge buildings like this with a gym, classrooms and a commercial kitchen, should ALWAYS BELONG TO THE PEOPLE. Don't you agree? If so, join us! #joyfulstruggle 2w

pushbuffalo We at PUSH draw so much inspiration from the Civil Rights Movement because in 2014 there is still no REFUGE, SOLACE or JUSTICE for low-income and working people in our society that seek a decent job or a safe place to live. Shameful. The struggle continues and we intend to win this fight. If you believe in justice, you should join us! Who among you is ready to become a member of PUSH? We mean business! #freedom 2w

pushbuffalo Save the babies! This is a pic from our youth center, the Grant St Neighborhood Center. We formed it back in 2008 because neighborhood youth needed a safe and productive space to be kids. If we don't invest in and nurture the youth of our city, no matter where they are from, then we should just forget about our city's future. Youth have powerful voices and we seek to honor them. #buffalony #gsnc #savethebabies 1mon

pushbuffalo A coalition of community organizers RISKED THEIR LIVES to help register Mississippians to vote 50 summers ago. They didn't know if they'd come back. They call that summer #freedomsummer. They came from every background, color and creed. We, Buffalonians, are going to need that same UNITY if we have any chance of conquering the ills that plague our beloved city. We believe in the power of a people united. Do YOU believe? (That's why we put "people united" in our name) #joyfulstruggle #peoplepower #unity #buffalony #beloved 1mon

pushbuffalo Rain garden construction is hard work. Hauling dirt and disconnecting downspouts aint easy. Yet, the #PUSHBlue team is installing dozens of them. Not because they're pretty but because they clean our water and have the potential to create jobs in our communities. We're not waiting for jobs to "come" to our neighborhood; we're creating them at the grassroots. Green Jobs are REAL. #greenjobs #GI #buffalony 1mon

pushbuffalo We pose 1 question to all of you today: Do you have hope for the future of our beloved city? #buffalony. There is over 10 million dollars of rehab and construction happening on our city's west side...it is breathtaking. There is ONLY hope for our city if the people that reside in it feel it, believe it and are leaders in it. Reply to us here, show up to a meeting, join as a member or send a telegram. No matter the medium, we are listening! #joyfulstruggle 1mon

pushbuffalo Are you following the injustice coming out of Detriot with the water shut offs to over 17,000 households who can't afford to pay? WATER IS A HUMAN RIGHT! The United Nations agrees. Stand in solidarity with the people of Detriot by following and sharing the hashtag #detriotwater and share this image! #justice #detroit #solidarity #waterisahumanright 1mon

pushbuffalo Amazing to see this little house transformed in front of our eyes. It's a job training site for dozens of Buffalo residents too. We're almost done with the metal roof! #metalroof #joyfulstruggle #buffalony 1mon

pushbuffalo We rehab houses for the people; people who have lived in some of the worst conditions but still endure. We secure Community Benefits Agreements with our contractors so that residents get hired for the rehab work. Our efforts are not "for" them because we take our lead "from" them. People United for Sustainable Housing is rather long so we call ourselves PUSH. #joyfulstruggle 1mon

pushbuffalo The backbone of PUSH is certainly it's members. Residents of the West Side who are bold enough to take a stand on issues of poor housing and a lack of jobs in their community. We had a reception in one of our gardens earlier this week and their happy faces in this food-producing, sunkissed space is a beautiful sight. #joyfulstruggle #buffalony #jobs #housing #peoplepower 1mon
