Organizing in WNY

We’re organizing in WNY on a daily basis, at events, meetings, rallies, workshops, and more.

Our structure is made for that – that’s why we have taskforces for various issue areas. We also work in collaboration with other groups, both through the larger group as well as the taskforces.

Please contact us if you’d like to collaborate, coordinate, and/or work together on our (very broad) mission: Peace through justice, at home and abroad.
