Community Action Fair

Thursday, January 25, 2018

4 to 8 p.m.

Frederick Douglass R-Center

999 South Avenue, Rochester, NY 14620

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Action Fair is an opportunity to bring Rochester and the University Community together in an effort to focus our energies on community engagement, and making Rochester a better place to live, work, and play for all. This non-partisan event serves to highlight the ongoing work in our community, and to remind us of the richness and power of our community’s diversity. We affirm that both the University of Rochester and the broader Rochester community is a welcoming place for all people regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, political affiliation or any other aspect of a person’s identities.
