March's Speaker is Katherine Stewart!
"The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism"
Stewart pulls back the curtain on the inner workings and leading personalities of a movement that has turned religion into a tool for domination. She exposes a dense network of think tanks, advocacy groups, and pastoral organizations embedded in a rapidly expanding community of international alliances and united not by any central command but by a shared, anti-democratic vision and a common will to power.

Public Policy Participation and Political Action
Current Events Statement: Allegheny County Independent Police Review Board legislation was slated to be voted on this past January 26, 2021. The Pittsburgh Citizens Police Review Board was created after Johnny Gammage’s death at the hands of Brentwood police in 1995, but many Allegheny County municipalities lack police oversight.
An Allegheny County Independent Police Review Board was proposed after Antwon Rose was killed by East Pittsburgh police in 2018 and again after Romir Talley’s killing in December of 2019 by a Wilkinsburg policeman. Talley’s family worked for eight months just to get the name of the officer who shot him. A county-wide Independent Police Review Board would expedite investigations into these deaths.
