Connections: RASE Commission chairs discuss the recent RASE report


We welcome the chairs of the RASE Commission. The commission recently released its final report, detailing a variety of ways that Rochester and Monroe County can address racial any quality. Some of those ideas are economic, while others focus on policing and other areas. The commissioners are hoping that their report is the catalyst for change.

Our guests:

  • Bill Johnson, co-chair of the RASE Commission, and former mayor of Rochester
  • Muhammad Shafiq, co-chair of the RASE Commission, executive director of the Brian and Jean Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue, and professor of Islamic and religious studies at Nazareth College
