Partnership for the Public Good Policy Brief on Greening Vacant Lots in Buffalo

The Cyberhood is sponsored by the Urban Affairs Association (UAA) and the Center for Urban Studies at the University at Buffalo. The Cyberhood's mission is to encourage critical thinking about the the plight of communities of color, conditions in the inner city, and the problems of low-wage white workers. The website's goal is to connect students, scholars, practitioners, and activists from across the racial and class divide in order to build meaningful relationships. The building of such connections, we believe, will strengthen the struggle to understand and transform inner cities and the metropolitan regions of which they are a part.
