Black Lives Matter.
As a literary center, we are especially aware of the power of words—to summon grief and rage, joy and love, action and change. For 45 years, Just Buffalo has sought to push against the structures of systemic racism through our work, and we reaffirm that commitment to support and elevate the voices of Black writers and artists in all of our programming and decision-making. We feel deep gratitude and humility to work, live, create, and share art as a part of this community of activists, artists, and citizens committed to racial and social justice.
This is a time that offers the possibility of real transformation. There are so many ways to get involved, and there’s a role for every person and organization to play.
