The Greater Buffalo Racial Equity Roundtable is a cross-sector collaboration formed by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo (CFGB). CFBG is one of 14 Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation coordinating organizations funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

By partnering with 210 local organizations, the Roundtable works to create equitable opportunities through collaborative community efforts. They use data-driven strategies to lessen the cost of structural racism on the community and increase measurable benefits for people. CFGB quickly recognized bringing positive change to a community is a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week job.

Racial Equity Roundtable is a group of people of various backgrounds who can touch a large number of people.
