Your Wellbeing is Important to Us


BMC Policy

In the interest of our health and safety, here is our current policy with regard to COVID-19.

Updates are changing daily, and various locations seem unaffected at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and let everyone know if there is a need to cancel.

Meanwhile, if anyone has tested positive for the virus or if anyone shows symptoms of the virus, we ask that they inform us and not attend the seminar. We can discuss the financial resolution at that time.

Thank you for your patience and I assure you we will not take risks endangering your health and well being.

Take care and please wash your hands frequently. 



* Scheduled upcoming seminars below have been postponed in light of growing concerns around the spread of COVID-19. We are working to schedule new dates for these events and will notify everyone who has registered. We hope that you will be able to attend the rescheduled dates and you will be contacted when those dates are confirmed. If not, we will work out logistics regarding a refund or credit for future seminars.

Please refer back here for updates as we negotiate for rescheduling.


Your Wellbeing is Important to Us

The health and safety of there community is our priority. Here are some steps from there World Health Organization you can take to protect yourself from the new Coronavirus (COVID-19):

  • • Wash your hands frequently
  • • Maintain distance between yourself and those who are coughing or sneezing*
  • • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth
  • • Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze
  • • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early



We did not reserve block of rooms at a local as there will not be enough of us to make it worthwhile. For hotel within Rochester area can be found at https://www.trivago.com

(I made a mistake in the video. Holiday Inn and CDR is on State Street and around the corner is Main street are the other 3 hotels.) 

Hyatt Regency Rochester, Holiday Inn, Rochester Riverside Hotel and Hilton Garden Inn Rochester Downtown is the closest to Center for Disability Rights office. There are restaurants within the downtown areas. Most will require some driving to get there. or Uber.

The hotels along Jefferson Road near RIT offers variety of shopping and eating. Some hotels are cheaper than others. 

If you are considering AirBnB.com I would focus on East Avenue, Park Avenue and many breweries and eateries are along Park Avenue.   Monroe Avenue further away from the city is good. Again some driving/Uber to get around, Corn Hill is updated over the last few years to be historical district near by. Frederick Douglass and Susan B Anthony resided within this area.

You can always contact me using the contact form on this page if you have any questions.
