Leonard Brock, director of the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative, will hold a town hall meeting to discuss the initiative’s recent report “Guiding Principles: Mobilizing Our Community to Achieve Self-Sufficiency,” April 26.
The event is free and open to the public, and will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Adams Street Recreation Center, 85 Adams St.
The group released its 36-page report, designed to eradicate poverty in the region earlier this month, which it said detailed strategies to inform the work of RMAPI going forward.
Those strategies include goals like developing means for youth and adults to attend conferences, lectures, events, and business expos; creating tax incentives for neighborhood businesses; and partnering “with local agencies, hospitals and other organizations to offer professional development opportunities in the area of social-emotional and behavioral supports.”
In March, RMAPI said it would begin by focusing its efforts on three neighborhoods, and Brock is scheduled to provide an update on the group’s work.
