  • "Batman," student at the Rochester Institute of Technology
  • Eric Eagan, founder and president of #TrailsRoc
  • Jordin Paige, lead consultant and organizer for Being Black in the Burbs
  • Ashley Anderson, president of Hearthside Cats
  • Jaime Erskine-Pettit, co-founder of Dreams from Drake
  • Ashley Cross, Ed.D., executive director and hope giver for The Hub 585
  • Carol St. George, Ed.D., founder of Project READ, and professor of teaching and curriculum at the Warner School of Education at the University of Rochester
  • Van Stanley, owner of People's Choice Kitchen, and community activist
