Niagara Falls Social Justice Commission

The Niagara Falls Social Justice Commission will address inequality across a variety of platforms in the community.  The task of the commission is to break out in the various committees to examine ways for our community to address inequality in various areas. The results may involve local action–or may require state or federal action. Whatever the case may be, the commission will present a blueprint or roadmap for how these items may be addressed. The commission will meet during the months of July and August.

The five principal areas the commission will address include: law enforcement, health care, education, housing, and employment.

Listed below is a list of commissioners who will be serving on the various committees:

Law Enforcement

  • Rev. Craig Pridgen – President of NF Ministerial Council
  • Anthony Restaino – City of Niagara Falls City Administrator

Health Care

  • Dr. LaVonne Ansari – Chief Executive Officer of Community Health Center
