CULTIVATING UNITY IN OUR COMMUNITY
10.21.2022 | 8 AM - 1 PM
Memorial Art Gallery
500 University Avenue

Designed to address growing divisions in our community, BRAVE SPACES 2022 will help participants develop a deeper understanding of what is driving increased expressions of hate and feel empowered to address bias in their spheres of influence.

 

We invite youth and adults from across greater Rochester to join us for this half-day, in-person immersive learning experience. The Summit includes keynote and closing speakers, moderated discussions, and opportunities to network at breakfast and lunch. Registration is $35 but cost should not be a barrier to participating in the summit. Please email us info@endhateroc.org to learn more.

*Please note: Registration for the teen workshops is being coordinated by Levine Center staff and is not open to general subscription. Please contact Thomas Cuyler, Youth Engagement Coordinator, at tcuyler@jewishrochester.org for more information.

Scroll down to see the schedule for the day. We look forward to seeing you at this important event!

We are looking for corporate partners that share our commitment to building bridges across our community. Learn more about our sponsorship opportunities.
