Rochester's Rebellion | Nomination form

Stories of pioneers who have resisted the narrative created from outside pressures in pursuit of their own aspirations — even when that means pushing the limits of what’s possible. 

Who are these people? They are entrepreneurs, artists, educators, researchers and neighborhood leaders. They don’t crave the spotlight. They don’t wait for permission to act. They follow their instincts and push for progress, though in the moment doing so might be unpopular. They are the unknown legends whose faces you may not recognize, but whose contributions lift up others around them and bring about real change in our community.

Know someone who's badass enough to fit this description?
