Hello friends,

Please find a link to a quick survey for the Commitment to Racial Justice.  This survey asks you to share steps that your organization has taken to "listen, learn and act" since signing the Commitment.  It will take about 3-5 minutes to complete. We will be sharing the results of this initial survey at the September 27 gathering.  
To complete the survey by September 20, follow this link:
If you haven't received a calendar invite from me about the virtual gathering on September 27 from 12-1:30pm, please respond to me only via this email and I will add you!
Thank you so much for your commitment to make Rochester a place where everyone feels a sense of belonging.

About Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.
