Urban Action 1/7 

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

Fair housing forums

The City of Rochester will hold two public forums on fair housing on Thursday, January 15. The first is from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., while the second is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be no difference in the meetings. The city is currently undertaking a study to evaluate fair-housing issues in Rochester. The study is called the "Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice" and the meeting is to provide preliminary findings, encourage discussion, and hear suggestions on how to eliminate impediments to fair housing. The meeting will be held at the Rochester Central Library, 114 South Avenue, in the Kate Gleason Auditorium.

Conversation about race

The Lifetree Café will present "What Your Black Friend Wants You to Know: the Conversation about Race No One is Having," an open conversation about race at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 12. The program will include a film that features insights from black Americans about their experiences. The meeting will be held at 1301 Vintage Lane, Greece.
