local roots, global reach
540WMain was founded in 2016 as a grassroots community space in the Susan B. Anthony district of Rochester, NY.
Today, our purpose remains unchanged; programming rooted in social justice, with a dedication to neighborhood revitalization. We now operate as a virtual hub, but our headquarters are still located in the neighborhood we will always call home.
Let us help broaden your horizons
540WMain is a virtual antiracist education platform that promotes justice for all. We encourage you to broaden your horizons through learning about multidisciplinary issues and topics that impact the world.
We examine topics that matter, together
We offer ways for you to learn about and engage with issues that directly impact your lived experience. Everything we teach prioritizes social justice and antiracism, always.
