Sarah Bishop

Sarah Bishop is the former Executive Director of Buffalo First!, a non-profit organization whose mission is to foster a strong, self-determined local economy in Western New York. Sarah currently works for the City of Buffalo, promoting localist principles and progressive public policies.

Community is the identifying of one another and the joining together for a common purpose: The Greater Good. Sarah will discuss this concept in much greater detail through practical steps in the Resolve to Evolve Mastery Program so you are able to get involved in your community in a meaningful way. As Audre Lorde once said, “When we define ourselves, when I define myself, the place in which I am like you and the place in which I am not like you, I’m not excluding you from the joining -- I’m broadening the joining.
