Buffalo Is Building
a New Shared Future

The Greater Buffalo Racial Equity Roundtable is comprised of more than 350 community partners working together in coordinated ways to advance racial equity and achieve an expanded, inclusive economy.

About Us

Who We Are

The Roundtable has a 10-point strategic agenda to close specific racial equity gaps in our community. This work is intentionally focused on changing systems by changing policies, practices and procedures. We recognize that when we work together to bridge the existing gaps in racial equity, more residents will be able to live, work and raise their children to reach their highest potential.

Our Initiatives


Your journey to becoming an advocate for racial equity can be as simple as reading a book or watching a movie and then discussing and sharing what you have learned in your circles of influence. We invite you to visit our resource section to explore content areas and types of tools to get started in developing an informed analysis about race, racism and racial equity.
