Racism has been declared a Public Health Crisis.

What is The Black Agenda?

The challenges and circumstances for Black people are varied and complex. Rochester’s Black community embraces and works to implement its collective interests in order to establish and maintain a comprehensive systematic framework (Black Agenda) that will be adopted to drive, influence, and endorse policies and practices in the areas of education, health and wellness, and economic development.

There’s plenty of dollars out there… how and where are they being allocated?

They come back because they have no choice and or place to go. Poverty is the deciding factor.

We need housing for violence victim’s πŸ€”

“Never giving money and little access”, that’s it.

Let’s support and build capacity with Jordan in support of victims

Healers Village and CERV will have a significant impact on healing this community.

Strong has a gun violence program?

While there have been the all these shootings over the yrs in certain places as per the data, what the data I think fails to incorporate is, and what I as a Rochestiarn have never seen or heard of is 1. Latey the broad day shootings 2. Many of them being carried out in hit teams (2/3 shooters) 3. Women targeted w/there children in very close proximity. These factors to me are different from from historical violence here in the ROC. Just would like to hear what others think about thisβœŒπŸΎπŸ’šβœŠπŸΎ

Come on and school the people Dr Irshad Altheimer

This was the balm my spirit needed. My soul painfully aches for Roccity, this space always reminds us of the "light", the hope! Ase'!

Sending so much love! I miss my family! See you soon! Thank you Elders and Eldresses!


We have to bring people to the table we don’t like

We also throw away creditable messengers
