Our City Action Buffalo (OCAB) is a broad coalition of Buffalo residents who have come together to disrupt the political status quo in our city through movement and people-centered politics and co-governance structures. We work to change systems and to shape policies to ensure racial, social, and economic justice for all Buffalonians.
About Our City Action Buffalo
We create change by championing issue-based campaigns that shift power from the few to the many, and electing leaders who believe that community members have a right to be engaged, involved, and act as decision-makers, governing with instead of for.
It's been a busy year so far! We helped block funding for ShotSpotter, widely-criticized surveillance tech used by the police; we're leading the fight for fair maps; and we endorsed winning-candidate Jen Mecozzi for school board.
