Statement on Social Justice

As a destination marketing organization dedicated to bringing people together and fostering compassion, understanding and cultural awareness through travel, Visit Buffalo Niagara stands in support of the struggle for human rights and social justice and in opposition to the forces that would divide us. We believe that the color of your skin should not impact how you are treated and we offer our deepest sympathy to Black Americans who have been marginalized, fearful and victims of violence.  We are committed to speaking out against racism and injustice and supporting the many races, ethnic groups and traditions that make our community not only a place worth visiting, but living.
