TAKING 

Action

We often hear that it will take support from the entire community to achieve progress, yet it can be difficult to know where to start. We hope you will consider joining us at one of our upcoming events to join the conversation.

 

In the meantime, some of our recent programs have given us jumping off points. The Black Prosperity panelists encouraged us to support Black owned businesses in our community. Our "State of Hate in Greater Rochester" community survey offered some suggestions for addressing discrimination and we are encouraged that nearly half of our respondents have taken some action. Have a suggestion for actions we should discuss? Send us a message!
