Feast of Tables this Saturday

feast-of-tables_slideThe good people with VOICE-Buffalo are putting on their annual Feast of Tables this Saturday, April 27th at 5:30pm at New Cedar Grove Life Changing Church (100 Old Maryvale Road; Cheektoawaga). The event is a “celebration of the work accomplished by grassroots social justice movements in our community and an essential fundraiser to support this important work for the year to come.”

“Our community has many challenges, but also many opportunities,” notes Duane Diggs, President of VOICE-Buffalo. “To be successful in utilizing these opportunities to overcome the many challenges will require us, as a community, to come together across traditionally divisive lines like race, income, geography and political affiliation. We must ALL have a voice in the decisions that impact our families and communities. This is what VOICE-Buffalo does – ensures ALL have a voice.”

PUSH Buffalo’s National Fuel Campaign Continues

Tonight at 6pm, PUSH Buffalo is staging a march from the corner of Porter and Niagara streets to Holy Cross Church on the corner of Niagara and Maryland streets. The purpose of the march is to call attention to PUSH’s efforts to engage National Fuel in a discussion about the company’s conservation incentive program.

National Fuel responded to PUSH’s campaign by asking a judge to issue restraining orders that would prohibit PUSH members from demonstrating on company property. (You can read a little bit about that here.)

The march ends at Holy Cross Curch, which will host the annual meetings of PUSH, NOAH, and VOICE Buffalo. Among the subjects of discussion will be an upcoming series of community meetings regarding development of Buffalo’s Inner Harbor.
