ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren called it a historic moment in Monroe County as the city and county joined forces to launch the Commission on Racial and Structural Equity last June. The aim: to go deep and look for any systemic racism.

The commission spent the next six months going over local laws, policies, and practices. In March, it released a comprehensive report.

What's happened since the release? 

News10NBC's Lynette Adams spoke with Nazareth professor Dr. Mohammad Shafiq and former Rochester Mayor Bill Johnson, two chairs of the RASE Commission.
