About The Event

The Social Justice Committee welcomes Alison Noyce, President of Tri-Town Against Racism, a nonprofit dedicated to anti-racism through education, positive communication, and listening to the voices of those affected. 

Alison has lived in Rochester since 1996. She loves the Tri-Town for it’s natural beauty and strong sense of community. It wasn’t until she and her husband adopted their son from Ethiopia in 2006, that she realized that the community that they chose to raise their two daughters in was not as idyllic as she once believed. Raising Black sons (Her second son joined the family in 2007) created challenges they did not face when raising their white daughters. While her family loves the Tri-Town, they have been working to make it more inclusive, raising awareness in their social circles, and in the school system.The formation of Tri-Town Against Racism has given Alison real hope that meaningful change will happen in our community.

Alison is a graduate of Mt. Ida College and Quincy College. She is an RN, who worked in the maternity unit of Tobey Hospital for a decade.

In addition to her work with TTAR, Alison is active in the adoption community, both as an adoptee and an adoptive parent.

Alison’s passions include photography, reading, kayaking, and hiking. But her favorite thing of all happens every Sunday at 6:00, when she and her husband (whom she married in 1983) host Sunday dinner for their 2 adult daughters, 2 sons-in-law, 4 grandchildren, and their 2 teenage sons, all Rochester residents.
