New organization hopes to end cycle of issues affecting women in Rochester
Brightstar Community is a new Rochester-based non-profit organization working to fix serious issues affecting the Rochester community.
The group is holding a panel discussion tomorrow focused on breaking the cycle of addiction, prostitution and human trafficking in our area.
The discussion is from 10-11:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Center for Urban Entrepreneurship on Franklin Street in Downtown Rochester.
Sue Kirby, Brightstar's executive director, joined us on Good Day Rochester to explain, along with Becca Stevens, founder of Thistle Farms, an organization from Nashville that inspired Brightstar.
