Just Transition Buffalo & Crossroads CollectiveBack >
The Crossroads Collective is committed to building a new community economy. It is a new, first-of-its-kind alliance based in the city of Buffalo. We are activists, creators, growers, grassroots educators, organizers, and researchers who realize that all of today’s major battles for community justice are linked, and equally important. Crossroads is about grassroots movements throughout our city joining forces and winning on critical community concerns.
All who yearn for a Buffalo "just transition" — including racial justice, energy democracy, climate justice, food justice, economic justice — are invited to engage and help build the Crossroads Collective.
