One important focus of SAVE ROCHESTER is youth advocacy. We want youth to come together to showcase their talents in a positive way by expressing how BLACK LIVES MATTER to them. We are currently planning this show case to be including as a part of our next protest!
We recognize that splinter groups and radicals create violence and tension within the Black Lives Matter movement. Our goal is to promote solidarity among protesters. We are working on producing anti-racist ads to promote unity and to better identify allies.
The best way to have the most impact is to organize. This means educating community members about Critical Race Theory. Allies often feel powerless and Black Americans and POC feel frustrated at allies for not fully understanding. We want to organize people who are like-minded and feel compelled to have these difficult conversations and to take action!
