Connections: ROC2Change Student Summit on Race addresses implicit bias


The ROC2Change Student Summit on Race is among the most recent examples of youth activism in our community. The summit at Churchville-Chili High School brought together hundreds of students from across Monroe County to address racial disparities and racism in schools.

We talk to students who participated in the event about what they learned about implicit bias, and how they plan to address discrimination in their daily lives. We also discuss what it means to be a youth activist in this current political climate. In studio:

  • Jocelyn Hernandez, senior at Churchville-Chili High School
  • Asha Charles, junior at Churchville-Chili High School
  • Amari Conyers, senior at Churchville-Chili High School
  • Jason Cline, assistant principal and facilitator of the ROC2Change Student Summit on Race at Churchville-Chili High School
