(ABC 6 News) -- Friday evening, Communities United for Rochester Empowerment, also known as CURE, hosted the 'Greater Than Fear' Community Dinner at Longfellow Elementary School.
Guests were encouraged to bring dishes they enjoy or represent their cultures.
CURE members said 2018 was a successful year and they hope to continue conversations with city leaders to ensure Rochester is a welcoming and inclusive place for everyone.
CURE member Aleta Borrud said, "Fear has been used as a political weapon and we say 'no'. We are willing and open to the diversity and the richness that diversity brings to our community and that we want to make sure everyone is welcome and protected here and can thrive."
CURE has been a part of Rochester for almost two years. Finding solutions to affordable housing and raising the minimum wage continue to be at the top of CURE's priority list.
