Black Women Roc! 2020
We are so excited to share that we received over 30 nominations for our 4th annual Black Women Roc! 2020. This is the most nominations we have ever received for the campaign and we are truly grateful for all of your submissions. There is no shortage of talented Black women committed to transforming Rochester into a more equitable place for all. Out of the thirty submissions, we selected four Black women to be finalists of which we will highlight one for each week in June. We are excited to share our first highlighted finalist, and their life and work, across all of our digital platforms on June 9th, 2020.
so without further adieu…
