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

Duffy shares local, state outlook

Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library will present a talk by Bob Duffy, former Rochester mayor and former lieutenant governor of New York State, at 12:12 p.m. on Tuesday, January 13. Duffy will talk about his experience in Albany and his outlook for the state and Rochester. The event will be held at the Central Library's Kate Gleason Auditorium, 115 South Avenue. Participants can bring their lunch or stop at the café in the library.

Center tries a different approach to poverty

The Rochester Baha'i Center will hold a community meeting to address concentrated poverty in Rochester on Saturday, January 3. Experts in education, politics, and urban planning have all weighed in on its impact. But the center invites the community to use the theater approach of Augusto Boal to explore poverty and to have a true dialogue about how to resolve it. Performances in the Boal tradition aim to transform the audience from passive spectators to active participants. The event will be held at 693 East Avenue and begin with a potluck community meal at 6 p.m. The main event starts at 7 p.m.
