To Do Their Jobs Effectively, Nonprofit Grassroots Leaders Need Health and Wellness Support

Gloria Walton, President & CEO of The Solutions Project, believes that it’s important to take care of ourselves while doing the work. She writes about how the philanthropy sector can help support movement leaders’ wellness and well being in her latest feature in Chronicle of Philanthropy. Read the article here:

Originally published in The Chronicle of Philanthropy on December 6, 2021. I had spent the last three days adventure-spelunking in Borneo, stretching and squeezing my body through narrow rock formations and intermingling with the largest crickets, snakes, and spiders I’ve ever seen.

Soft launch of 🧥🧢 The GSNC Winter Clothing Drive 🧤🧣. Help make this ❄️winter season❄️ merry and bright for community members who need it the most! We are partnering with @breadhive and other local businesses and organizations to collect all gently used winter clothing items. More clothing barrels will be set up in different locations around buffalo. Please visit their location and tag us!

All donations will go to @jfmfofwny that is a nonprofit agency that promotes justice for migrant families by providing support to individuals in federal detention facility in Batavia. As families across the United States prepare to be together, ICE has left more than thirty people at the side of the road at a gas station in rural WNY with nothing but the clothes on their back. They have no access to phones, appropriate clothing for the winter weather, food, money, limited or no English proficiency, and few transportation options. Justice for Migrant Families has joined forces with Batavia volunteers to make sure that every person we find is reunited with family and community and has support in the final leg of their arduous journey. Donate to help keep this vial work going!

Big thank you to everyone who made this possible and we look forward to seeing what our community donation drive can raise for a meaningful cause!

Good cause eviction has momentum leading into 2022

“Kathy Hochul is someone who has already shown that she’s a lot more willing to govern collaboratively with the other arms of government,” said Cea Weaver, the campaign coordinator for Housing Justice for All. “I think that that means that there’s a path.”

Our new year’s resolution is to fight for tenant’s in Buffalo and across the state to pass #GoodCause in 2022. To get involved, contact PUSH’s Housing Justice Organizer Teresa Watson at [email protected].

Coming off of local successes, housing advocates are hoping to score a major statewide tenant protection victory.

The Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address is called Ohén:ton Karihwatéhkwen, meaning “What we say before we do anything important.” This traditional Native address, used as an opening and closing to gatherings and meetings, is meant to root people in a relationship of giving thanks for life and the world around.

“We have been given the duty to live in balance and harmony with each other and all living things. So now, we bring our minds together as one as we give greetings and thanks to each other as people.”

West Side block club goes DIY on street crosswalks

Direct action gets the goods!

[T]he project was triggered by the death of a 12-year-old hit by a car while crossing the street and an elderly pedestrian hit a few days later.

"We've had multiple pedestrian accidents on 14th. At the intersection, a car drove into a house. At the intersection, when I first moved here about five years ago. It's absolutely insane and people don't let their children be children because it's so unsafe," Williams said.

Four intersections on Hampshire Street on Buffalo's West Side now have proper crosswalks, painted according to federal rules.

JFMF Press Conference: Crisis at the Northern Border with our partners from Justice For Migrant Families , The New York Immigration Coalition , and PUSH Buffalo to raise awareness about the immigration crisis at the northern border. ICE continues to release immigrants from the Batavia Federal Detention Center in a process that traumatizes people and families. An estimated 100 immigrants have been left at a gas station in Batavia this past month alone, with limited resources and their belongings in trash bags. We should not be treating people this way. Contact your reps today. For more information on how to get involved, visit: https://www.justiceformigrantfamilies.org/
