WNY Apollo Alliance
  • Develop a Facebook and internet presence for WNY Apollo.  Write profiles of member organizations and their activities and possibly film interviews with them.  Create video and other materials about the HECK program, including interviews with past participants, to aid in explaining, marketing, and fundraising for the program.
  • Work with the local Environmental Justice Action Group to collect success stories of Buffalo environmental justice struggles.  Use written materials, photos, and video to tell these stories in a way that inspires more.

WNY Apollo is a local chapter of a national coalition of labor, business, and environmental groups promoting the green economy.  Our local chapter currently operates an annual home energy conservation (HECK) program for low-income homeowners and is seeking to expand into other arenas.
