In honor of our nation’s 57th presidential election, and in time for July 4th celebrations, the Council presents a new Community Conversations toolkit on democracy. Toolkits guide families & children, young adults, and general audiences in discussing the importance of active participation in our communities. Sign up now to receive a toolkit!

Rochester: Flour City to Flower City

Letchworth State ParkLast week, our board and staff toured Rochester as part of our summer meeting. We visited Susan B. Anthony House, WXXI Public Media, Baobab Cultural Center, Memorial Art Gallery, and Geneseo Migrant Center. A lunch with program partners hosted and partly underwritten by Restaurant 2 Vine and a trip to scenic Letchworth State Park rounded out the itinerary. Check out some photos from Rochester.
