Hands Across Buffalo is an effort to promote racial unity and a community commitment to better understanding race and poverty. The event was held May 17, 2014 at 11 am,  It featured nearly 5,000 people joining hands across the length of Ferry St. from the Niagara River to Bailey Avenue. Ferry was chosen because it crosses several racially and economically diverse neighborhoods and because of its rich history, including the Underground Railroad. The event was followed by a series of discussions and programs at various locations on specific topics of race and poverty.  The event showcased Buffalo as a proudly united community.

What is Hands Across Buffalo?
