Activists to march for peace

Anti-war activists will hold the Memorial Day Peace Parade on Monday, May 30.

The parade will start at 10 a.m. and participants are asked to meet at East Main Street and Scio Street. Information: Doug Noble, 442-3383.

Lecture on free speech

The Harley School will host "Free Speech in Danger?" at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 26. The lecture by Karin Deutsch Karlekar looks at how this fundamental human right is being threatened at home and globally. Writers, journalists, and citizens face imprisonment and murder as a result of their expression. The event will be held at Harley, 1981 Clover Street.

RCSD forum focuses on discipline

The Rochester City School District's school board will hold a public hearing on a revised Code of Conduct policy at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 2. The proposed policy changes are the result of a year of community meetings that ultimately recommended a dramatic reduction in punitive disciplinary measures such as suspensions. The meeting will be held at the district's central office, 131 West Broad Street.

Talk about independence for Puerto Rico

The Rochester Committee on Latin America will present "My Journey as an Independentista," a talk with Henry Padron, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1.

His talk will be held at Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 North Fitzhugh Street.
