The Levine Center to End Hate seeks to unite the greater Rochester community in overcoming hate through education, dialogue, and positive action.


Each step taken to end hate is a transformative opportunity we create together. The Levine Center to End Hate increases these opportunities through programming that activates cooperative and collaborative responses to hate in all its forms. Partnering with local agencies throughout greater Rochester, we are proud to amplify efforts that foster tolerance and understanding across our community.

Asian Matters:

Standing with Rochester's Asian American Communities

With attacks on Asian and Asian Americans increasing across the country, the Levine Center to End Hate was proud to partner with Monroe Community College’s Department of Global Education & International Services to present a three-part series exploring the Asian and Asian American communities of Greater Rochester.

Racism Is a Public Health Crisis

Protests across the country are calling us to witness what we have always known to exist: the systemic racism that underlies and permeates our societal structures. We express grief, pain, and outrage over centuries of racial injustice that have resulted in Black lives demeaned, derailed, and cut short.

We formally pledge our support for the Greater Rochester Black Agenda Group’s declaration that Racism is a Public Health Crisis which demands urgent action to address persistent, toxic, and lethal racial discrimination in our community.



This Is What Transformative

Looks Like

In continuing our mission to unite our community through education, dialogue, and positive action, the Levine Center to End Hate was thrilled to host BRAVE SPACES: Rochester's Summit to End Hate on September 13, 2020. The day-long online event examined issues of racism, antisemitism, and other forms of hate, and featured addresses from nationally renowned civil rights experts and multiple workshops led by local thought leaders.
