Open Buffalo is committed to advancing racial, economic, and ecological justice in Western NY. Our Race, Power, and Privilege (RPP) program strengthens local businesses and institutions who are seeking to be drivers of community progress. We empower participants with a deep understanding of the history of race in America and systemic oppression, as well as tools for dismantling internal and external racial oppression. The RPP process also includes a racial equity audit and organizational improvement plan customized to meet your needs. We believe relationship building to be the cornerstone in dismantling oppression, thus we will engage in trust- and relationship-building activities that give participants safe spaces to think, talk, and feel in ways that they haven’t been able to before.
To find out if the RPP process is right for you or your institution, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
