Sixth Annual Racial Justice Summit Town Hall - a Panel Discussion on Racial, Environmental, and Disability Justice

Thursday, December 9, 2021 6 to 8:30PM

The Pittsburgh Racial Justice Summit 2022 season pre-event, the Summit Town Hall, which will be focusing on disability and environmental justice and the intersections of race. This will be a panel style event featuring people steeped in community and educational work around these important topics that we often don’t talk about with the intersections of blackness and race overall. With lived experience our panelists will talk about their place within these movements, and educate alongside each other, and alongside our communities. We have much to learn about these issues that affect all us and particularly the Black community.

And please join us on January 21-22, 2022 for the Pittsburgh Racial Justice Summit, a multicultural initiative of the Black and White Reunion.

Per our bylaws, the PFC Activism and Social Justice Committee is responsible for organizing PFC efforts and events that fall within the umbrella of “activism” as opposed to educational or social.  Activism may require in-person participation at a specific time and place, or the encouragement of PFC members and stakeholders to take independent actions such as contacting a government official. These efforts and events may include participation with other groups’ organized events or at events wholly conducted by PFC. The Chair may appoint any number of Organizers to manage specific one-time or recurring events such as a specific Meetup or FB event.
