Wednesday night, Pittsford residents gathered at Lock 32 Brewing Company for an event organized by PittsForward. 

Local business owners started “PittsForward” after fliers promoting white supremacy were left in neighborhoods in Pittsford and Brighton. 

The gathering on Wednesday was scheduled to encourage the community to move forward together, following the election. The organization intends to “build a bridge to help with healing.” 

Yard signs promoting unity were distributed at the gathering.

“It doesn’t really matter what our political affiliation is, it matters that we’re neighbors and we are in the same community and for us to be able to live and work and learn and do things together as a functional community we have to be united,” said Kendra Evans, organizer of PittsForward. “We have to collaborate and work together and see each other’s perspectives.”

The invitation to the event invited the community to “hug a neighbor, share a drink, grab a yard sign, regardless of whether you are a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent.” 

PittsForward will host another gathering this coming Monday to have a dialogue about things like racism, privilege, and other sensitive topics.
