Uplifting Community Expertise
A video series featuring community expert insights on how they’ve built strong communities in Western New York
The ILR School plays a vital role in Western New York, working in partnership with businesses, unions, government, education and community organizations to build an economy that works for all residents. Buffalo Co-Lab, in collaboration with Partnership for the Public Good and eCornell, is now producing short videos and artistic expressions that can be used for community-engaged learning and more.
Motivated by their desire to develop the next generation of community changemakers, the community experts share their insights and experiences on topics such as racial equity, building political power, community development and using data and information to motivate others. When complete, the videos will be used in High Road courses, the eCornell Equitable Community Change Certificate and ILR Visiting Activist Scholar courses, and by the featured community partner organizations.
Topics: Access, Equity and Justice; Arts, Communication, Media and Design; Economic Vitality and Entrepreneurship; Law, Government and Policy
