Agents For Advocacy was founded in response to the tragic events of May 14, 2022, in Buffalo, NY. Our founder, Mark Talley, was inspired to create this organization after his mother, Geraldine C Talley, was killed in the attack. We are dedicated to combatting systemic racism and promoting socioeconomic equality in order to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their race or background.
Since our incorporation in July 2022 and our 501(c)3 status in October 2022, we have been working tirelessly to make a difference in our community. We have hosted several events, including a Community BBQ and Prayer, a Back to School Drive, and a Thanksgiving Event called “Helpful Hands & Giving Thanks”. Through these events, we have been able to feed over 1500 people, provide close to 700 backpacks and other school supplies, and distribute over 300 books on racism in the workplace.
To be an Agent for Advocacy means standing up for what is right, fair, and just. We invite you to join us in our mission and become a part of our community. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.
