About People United for Sustainable Housing (PUSH) Buffalo
About PUSH Buffalo PUSH Buffalo is a community-based non-profit located on Buffalo’s West Side. The organization was founded in 2005 as a membership organization that would combine community development and community organizing activities to address displacement and improve Buffalo’s West Side. Our mission today is to mobilize residents to create strong neighborhoods with quality affordable housing; to expand local hiring opportunities; and to advance social, economic and environmental justice in Buffalo. At PUSH we know that our current systems are not designed for the sustainable, regenerative future we need in our neighborhoods, cities, regions, states, and country. By design, they put people over corporate profit, and fail to address the disproportionate marginalization of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), and poor and working-class communities. At PUSH, we build community power for a Just Transition by organizing people and money to secure housing, climate, and environmental justice campaign victories that lead to transformative, structural change. At the same time, our New Economy Department works to develop and implement community-based solutions on the ground in our neighborhood
