Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! I am pleased to share with you the success of two of events this academic year:

1) “How Politics Really Works: An Insiders’ View on Oct. 20, 2016” and
2) Our Professional Development for Secondary Teachers: “Frederick Douglass and Antislavery Politics in Rochester and Upstate New York, Dec. 9-11, 2016.”

Both of these events were new to the Center’s programming this year. There were 300 students from seven area schools for the first event and 30 Secondary Teachers from throughout the country in the second.

Please know that to continue these exciting programs, we need your support. Donations can be made to our website

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me or my assistant Ms. Cassandra Shellman.
