Robert Johnson III

Partnership for the Public Good

  • Authored a report on racial disparities in Buffalo.
  • Analyzed data about the black labor market in Buffalo compared to the county, state and nation.
  • Helped the Living Wage Commission enforce compliance measures for first and second quarters of 2015.
"During my time here I have seen people of all identifications that may in one context or another, be described as ‘in’, be unafraid to recognize their privilege and how it  obstructs the equitable allocation of justice and opportunity to ‘others’.  I am honored to have witnessed this radical movement for equitable development and hope that the work I’ve done adds, even marginally, to the movement’s objective of re-conceiving Buffalo as place that affords justice and opportunity to all who call it home."
