Seanelle HawkinsPresenter: Dr. Seanelle Hawkins, President & CEO Urban League of Rochester

The Urban League of Rochester’s INTERRUPT RACISM initiative began as a collective impact approach to soliciting ideas and suggestions from community members on creating a pathway to healing from racial injustice.
Today the Interrupt Racism work has expanded to an entire Equity and Advocacy Division, including the annual Interrupt Racism Summit, Interrupt Racism Reports to the Community, the development of the Interruption Model, Interrupt Racism Change Team Cohorts, and the Powerbrokers of Rochester. Each component is guided by a multi-pronged strategy to help create a more equitable and inclusive community. 
Learn why the Interruption work must continue and how you can help. Understand how the Urban League is activating organization and business leaders to engage in Interruption work that goes beyond solidarity statements and empowers leaders to continue learning, seek deeper systems transformation, and create organizational change. Together, our Interruption will create a more equitable Rochester.
