People United for Sustainable Housing (PUSH) Buffalo
PUSH Buffalo mobilizes residents to create strong neighborhoods with quality, affordable housing; to expand local hiring opportunities; and to advance economic and environmental justice in the City of Buffalo, NY.
With support from the Pisces Foundation, PUSH Buffalo works to improve water quality by advocating for One Water at the city, county, and state levels. PUSH also certifies local experts in the design and installation of green infrastructure projects while also securing management contracts that create local jobs for the community.
PUSH Buffalo’s water initiative, PUSH Blue is a social justice enterprise that creates and certifies skilled-worker jobs for green stormwater infrastructure implementation. PUSH Blue employs workers from underserved communities and helps them build the knowledge, skills, and solutions they need to address water equity and climate justice in their communities. Some highlights of past PUSH Blue green infrastructure installations can be found on PUSH Buffalo’s Instagram page.
