MCC Aims to Promote Peace Through Weeklong Events


WHAT: Monroe Community College will promote anti-violence and aim to empower people to use positive forms of self-expression through a series of campus events from May 10-14 as part of the first-ever national “Enough is Enough” campaign ("https://www.EnoughisEnoughcampaign.org"). The goal of the campaign is to stem societal violence that results in school tragedies.

WHERE: R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center atrium on the Brighton Campus.                      

WHEN: A panel of speakers will share anti-violence messages and personal stories from noon to 12:45 p.m. Tuesday, May 11. Scheduled speakers are MCC President Anne M. Kress; Moses Robinson, Rochester Police Department officer and MCC lecturer; Simon Ruhindi, Brighton Campus Student Government Association member; and Lee Struble, MCC public safety director.

Photos taken by the Democrat and Chronicle depicting recent acts of violence in the Rochester area will be on display Monday through Friday. In addition, there will be an area for individuals to share their stories in writing about how they have been affected by acts of violence and to make a pledge to help reduce violence in the community.

Officer Robinson will also give an anti-violence presentation to residence hall students from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, May 13, in Canal Hall.
