Who We Are

The Partnership has a diverse representation from various segments of the community including government, banking, real estate, legal services, advocacy groups and community organizations (see list of current members).

"It Doesn't Happen Here"
Thanks to the Erie County Fair Housing Partnership and Squeaky Wheel Productions, here is a link to a thirty three minute documentary of "This Doesn't Happen Here", which explores Buffalos history of racial segregation and its activist challenges.
