NAACP Buffalo Branch

NAACP Buffalo Branch The Buffalo Branch of the NAACP shall be to improve the political, educational, social and economic status of minority groups. The Buffalo Branch NAACP since its inception, primarily serves the African American community within the Buffalo area.

With the enactment of the Civil Rights legislations, social, government and private agencies have come into being, such as the NYS Human Rights Commission and Equal Opportunity Commission (EOC). These groups and agencies have the legal authority to act for aggrieved persons. So while the NAACP continues to receive these complaints the local branch refers those cases they cannot, or have no authority to handle, to the proper designated agencies.

We remember the lives lost by the terrorist attacks 20 years ago. We honor their memory, and extend our prayers and support for our families, friends and loved ones who still feel the devastating effects of that day. #NeverForget

With the stroke of a pen, Texas Gov. Greg Abbot just signed into law a bill that will make it harder for Black Texans to vote. This is unacceptable and a spit in the face of democracy. It’s suppression and we all have to fight it.

Another Voice: Highmark’s ‘community commitment’ misses the mark

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York keeps swinging and missing when it comes to being responsive to the health and well-being of this region.

Highmark’s meager $2 million for five years for these two regions is an insult and does not represent a real investment by a company with assets of $20 billion.

REGISTRATION LINK IN BIO!
In 2021, the Biden Administration has created the 'Build Back Better Plan' which is aimed at addressing the harm caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic. The plan is divided into
three parts: The American Rescue Plan, the American Jobs Plan, and the American Families Plan. These federally created plans will quickly become local issues, as parts of it already have, and it is important that
local communities are aware of what the funds created in these plans are and have a voice in how they will be used. Please join Healthcare Education Project, AFL-CIO WNY President Emeritus Richard Lipsitz, the Buffalo Urban League Young Professionals, and the Buffalo NAACP in a community conversation about the Build Back Better Plan and how it should be used in our community. Right here in Buffalo! @healthcareeducation
