How do we unite greater Rochester behind the very clear and powerful message to end hate? We work with organizations within our community to amplify both new and existing efforts to activate cooperative and collaborative responses to hate in all its forms. Does your group need support? Let us know!
Our own initiatives include our "State of Hate in Greater Rochester" community survey and Brave Spaces: Rochester's Annual Summit to End Hate. You can also find session recordings from Brave Spaces 2021. Brave Spaces 2022 will take place on October 21, 2022. Additional Levine Center programming includes events such as Black Prosperity, The Disturbing Resilience of Anti-Semitism, Taking Violent White Supremacy to Court, A Tale of Two Cities, Asian Matters, and Why Do We Hate?
“I would ask people in this room what have you done to bring people together? What uncomfortable conversations have you had? It’s individual people who make change. Don’t be afraid of doing things that you can control in your own little world.”
