Have you seen the mural of the late Rep. John Lewis at 55 State Street in downtown Rochester? Covering 3,000 square feet of wall space, it is stunning and should definitely be seen in person!

July 26, 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of President George H. W. Bush’s signing into law the Americans with Disabilities Act. To commemorate this landmark law, WXXI and the Golisano Foundation present special programming, virtual screenings, and news features.

The last few months have been incredibly difficult for all of us, and the protests and riots in June have added to the stress that so many of us are feeling.

WXXI, CITY Newspaper and the Little Theatre stand in solidarity with all those who are committed to fighting racial injustice.
