Click here to access Building the Equitable City: A Resource Guide
Curated by the CDCR & Rochester Community

This guide offers a number of resources that will assist our thinking about issues of race, equity, and the ongoing construction of a city of fairness and justice. It is not meant in any sense to be comprehensive. Instead, it offers a number of helpful perspectives – and some true classics in the American literature of race – as a starting place for building a better Rochester. Comments and additions are welcome.
