    Metro Justice’s values are integral to our annual Alternative Fair. You can enjoy FAMILY HOLIDAY SHOPPING with a conscience at Metro Justice’s 34th annual Alternative Fair, featuring thousands of unique fair trade, earth friendly, and locally produced goods that support a strong local economy and a just and sustainable world.

    This is holiday shopping at prices the whole family can afford, and for many families, it’s their #1 shopping destination each year.  Sale items include pottery, textiles, jewelry, fine art, toys & games, ornaments, and much more — all fair trade imports or hand crafted by local artists.

    There is a suggested donation of $5 for all those over age 12, and free child care is available for young children and babies. Bring the whole family for several hours, and enjoy the festive atmosphere as you shop with a conscience. Chances are you’ll see many friends, too!

    If you would like to volunteer or be a vendor please e-mail

    Teen Empowerment in Rochester, NY

    Local Strategy



    Every child in Rochester deserves to thrive at school. Help us plan that vision at our local strategy session. The AQE/Metro Justice Education Committee and Teen Empowerment are planning their local education campaigns for next year on Saturday, December 12th. The strategy session will be from 10am to 2pm at Teen Empowerment, 392 Genesee St, Rochester, NY 14611

    How will we expand restorative justice programs to every school in Rochester? How do we ensure the new code of conduct is finally passed and faithfully implemented? How do we fight back against receivership, school closings, and the constant instability that plagues the Rochester City School District? 

    We need to empower the community, parents, and students to fight back. Help us build positive school climate, equitably funded-schools, and the next generation of leaders. 

    "A vision without a plan is just a dream.

    A plan without a vision is just drudgery.

    But a vision with a plan can change the world."

    We will have food, good cheer, and social justice on tap. See you there!
