Allison Duwe on Buffalo?s Living Wage Campaign and Local Economic Development

By ublaw


Our guest today is Allison Duwe, the Executive Director of the Coalition for Economic Justice (CEJ) in Buffalo. Along with UB Law Professors Sara Faherty, Sam Magavern, and Martha McCluskey, she was a co-organizer of the recent conference, The High Road Runs Through the City: Advocating for Economic Justice at the Local Level. For more information on that event, see Duwe moderated the panel, New Frontiers for the Living Wage, and was a speaker on the panel Now Comes the Hard Part: Implementing and Enforcing Living Wage Ordinances and Worker Protection Laws.

Ms. Duwe has been a leader in CEJ?s effort to pass and enforce Buffalo's living wage ordinance. Currently the Coalition is also working to reform economic development subsidies, advocating for legislation to improve transparency and fairness in New York State?s Empire Zone programs and Industrial Development Agencies (IDAs). Join us for a conversation with Allison Duwe as she talks about her work in the CEJ with UB law students Jose Velez, Emily Dillon, and Eduardo Machado.

The theme music is Baja Taxi by Brain Buckit, and is available through the Podsafe Music Network.
