This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)

Lecture on designing urban spaces

The Community Design Center of Rochester will present "Street Smart," a lecture by Victor Dover, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 28. Dover and his firm, Dover, Kohl & Partners, have been designing walkable and sustainable spaces for more than two decades. He is co-author of "Street Design: the Secret to Great Cities and Towns," and he shares his knowledge at a time when residents of communities across the country are seeking walkable and pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly streets. Dover will speak at Gleason Works' auditorium, 1000 University Avenue. Tickets: $15 general admission; students free with current ID; and seniors $10 with pre-registration. Information: 271-0520.

Library's race conversation continues

The Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library will hold "Conversations on Race," an ongoing community discussion, from 4:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, January 27. The meetings, which are presented in collaboration with a wide range of community organizations to raise awareness, have attracted more than 600 participants. This meeting will be held at the Maplewood Community Library, 1111 Dewey Avenue. Meetings are scheduled into March at different libraries throughout the city.
