INSPIRING

Leadership

Our steering committee was assembled to comprise local leaders in business, nonprofit, government, philanthropy, and law enforcement. Diverse in age, race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation, the steering committee has set the Levine Center to End Hate on course to develop and amplify anti-bias efforts across greater Rochester.
