Racism has been declared a Public Health Crisis.

What is The Black Agenda?

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.
