Let's talk about RACE
About this project

Nominate someone

Who in Pittsburgh is committed to fighting for racial equity and social justice? Who has a valuable perspective on racial issues in our region? We're looking for nominations. Introduce us or simply nominate someone you know, heard of or... maybe it's you. Let us know by emailing halle@publicsource.org.

We will listen and share these conversations to continue the focus on race in Pittsburgh. You can be a part of this movement to destigmatize discussions about race in your community and make strides toward an equitable future. We look forward to hearing from you.
