During the session, held at Rochester Museum & Science Center’s Eisenhart Auditorium, the poverty-related indicators were shared and the annual assessment of our region’s well-being was released.

Audience members, seated at tables of 10, were asked to discuss and provide feedback on feasible options to de-concentrate poverty, ways to help poor city children succeed in school, decide which leaders have the ability to solve our greatest challenges, and define the role of racial segregation in the concentration of poverty.
