Coalition for Economic Justice Queries State Senate Candidates

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Coalition for Economic Justice is a Buffalo-based non-profit organization that runs local and statewide campaigns for quality jobs and greater accountability in economic development.

As an extension of our campaign programming we engage in public education efforts and also register new voters, encourage occasional voters to become more active participants in our democracy, and provide all voters with information about where candidates stand on our issues.

We are a non-partisan organization and do not endorse or oppose candidates but do seek to promote active, open public discussion on critical issues facing our community and the state of New York.

Dog Park Safety

Dog Park Safety

Dog parks are great places for dogs to play and socialize with other dogs. Unfortunately, the fun can sometimes turn violent. Without proper knowledge, a dog and its handler are both subject to injury.

Robin Bennett, an author and trainer with All About Dogs in Woodbridge, Va., believes that in order for dog parks to be safe, dogs need to be properly supervised. This means that dog owners must know what to watch for if problems arise between the dogs.

“Early warning signs indicating that a dog is stressed include lip licking, yawning, half moon eyes, stiffening and avoidance,” Bennett said. “These signals all happen before things get too far out of hand.”
