Forum Sunday set to address poverty, racism and violence

From Rochester-

The question of how to address racism, poverty and violence will be the focus of discussion at a community event Sunday that will include a keynote address by the top official of the Episcopal Church.

"From Nightmare to Dream: Overcoming the Unholy Trinity of Poverty, Racism & Violence," will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Integrated Arts and Technology School, 950 Norton Street, in Rochester. Sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, the event is free and open to the public.

Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Bruce Curry will give the keynote address.  Curry is the first African-American head of the Episcopal Church's three million adherents in the United Stares. He is a native of Buffalo and graduate of Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva.

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren will join a panel discussion that will include Curry, other civic and religious leaders as well as youths from Teen Empowerment.
