Let's Get REAL - Race, Equity and Leadership

 19 REAL page header


On Jan. 22, 2019, Mayor Lovely A. Warren and representatives from the City Council and the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, signed a historic project charter that provides a framework for Rochester to implement specific strategies to advance racial equity through smart policy decisions, strong civic engagement, and accurate and complete portrayals of people of color in our community.

That charter, known as Let's Get REAL - Race, Equity and Leadership, is an effort that started in 2017 with help from the National League of Cities, and involves ongoing work in the community over this year and beyond. Rochester was one of six cities chosen in 2018 for its "Racial Healing Technical Assistance Initiative."
