We will be giving a short presentation on our latest work, followed by a panel discussion including and Tori Toliver-Powers (RMAPI), LaShunda Leslie-Smith (Connected Communities), Jennifer Leonard (President/CEO of Rochester Area Community Foundation), and Matt Hurlbutt (Greater Rochester Enterprise).
