For the first time since 2019, ACT Rochester, our region’s community indicators program, delivered its annual Report Card this morning to a live audience of more than 150 representing the government, business, nonprofit, faith-based and education sectors. The event focused on the urgency of making change happen after several years of disruption.
2021Annual Report Card Event
How can Rochester achieve an Inclusive Recovery? Inclusion results in everyone having the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from economic prosperity. Overall inclusion reflects the ability of historically exclude populations - lower-income residents and people of color.
National experts Alan Berube, senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, and Christina Stacy, principal research associate at the Urban Institute, spoke on understanding how we can quickly leverage and maximize the significant federal resources coming available to our community. They were followed by insight from a panel of esteemed local leaders including Bob Franklin, Chief Financial Officer of Monroe County, Carleen Pierce, Chief Financial Office at Rochester City School District and Chris Wagner, Budget Director for the City of Rochester.
Our data allows organizations and community members like you maximize your efforts in making informed decisions that impact our community. Although we made the difficult decision this year to cancel the event due to the pandemic, the 2020 Report Card is still available for download by clicking here.
