We focus on abolishing policing and supporting those harmed by policing practices in the City of Buffalo

Who We Are

We are a member-led, abolitionist organization of Black folk and POC that believes – through leadership development, a shared politic, and community organizing – we will build safe and flourishing communities that resist the ills of white supremacist, cis-heteropatriarchal, capitalism; including policing.

We ground our work in these four pillars:





BLRR develops Black and POC leadership to build a grounded and independent radical left, and develop home spaces in order to enable more organizers of color throughout the City of Buffalo.

BLRR vs City of Buffalo

We sought to minimize and reduce the harm caused by the Buffalo Police. We were named plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the City and their use of vehicular checkpoints, which unconstitutionally targeted communities of color and exacerbated their financial burdens through excessive ticketing, fines and fees.
