The Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester established the Levine Center to End Hate in the fall of 2018 as a response to increasing division, hateful rhetoric, and violence in the U.S. and locally. With a mission to unite the greater Rochester community in overcoming hate through education, dialogue, and positive action, the Levine Center to End Hate is the only initiative of its kind aimed at addressing all forms of bias.
The center develops programming to establish the foundation for strong local communities, with tools to address differences—and build understanding—in a civil, respectful, and productive way.
One way we are helping build a community of tolerance, understanding, and progress is by focusing on Rochester’s leaders of tomorrow. Our Youth Ambassador Council develops young leaders that engage their peers in dialogue and action to address hate.
