Work Highlights

This placement focused on issues related to poverty and inequality in Buffalo. The fellow researched funding for public transit and analyzed the budget challenges of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority and how to solve them. The fellow also continued research and advocacy for reform of the Erie County Holding Center: a county jail that has been the subject of federal civil rights litigation for inhumane conditions and treatment. Lastly, this fellow supported PPG's work with the City of Buffalo’s Living Wage Commission to monitor and enforce the City's living wage ordinance.
