On this edition of Need to Know we look into where Rochester stands in its efforts to create a community of racial equity and inclusion. That’s been a priority of various groups and partnerships for the past few years such as the Democrat & Chronicle’s Unite Rochester and Facing Race, Embracing Equity (FR=EE). What’s changed? What hasn’t? What’s new and what can community members do about it?
Also on the show, what’s with all the talk about making Rochester a hub of solar energy in the US? We learn more about the vision and social mission of a local movement working to impact everything from city neighborhoods and businesses, to area farms and wineries.
