I Will Stay If…

Ever mutter to yourself that you’ve had enough of this town and its stagnant economy, its squalid politics? Ever tell yourself that it’s time to move on? Stop now and ask yourself instead: What needs to change? What would make me stay? Take your answers down to the Century Grill tonight (Thursday, December 3), where the Great Lakes Urban Exchange, or GLUE—a network of young leaders in struggling Great Lakes cities—hosts a conversation called “I Will Stay If…” It’s the first step in a campaign to communicate to policymakers what needs to change in a city like Buffalo if it hopes to retain or attract the young, the educated, the civic-minded. GLUE has held similar events in Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Cleveland. There will be food and Flying Bison on tap. A small donation is requested but not required.
5:30pm. Century Grill, 320 Pearl Street.
