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.
