During November and December we raised $855 for Bend the Arc: Pittsburgh, part of a national movement of tens of thousands of progressive Jews that believes in the beautiful but unfulfilled promise of this country as a land of opportunity, justice, and equality for all. In the face of racism, inequality, and the politics of fear, we are asked to rise up with courage to act boldly for justice, believing that together we have the power to transform this country.
Allegheny’s Share the Plate program began in 2010 and directs half of our Sunday plate collection to justice partners doing important work in the communities of Pittsburgh’s North Side and beyond. To date we have collected and disbursed $33,877 to 43 justice partners. If you know of an organization or project doing good works contact <sharetheplate at alleghenyuu.org>.
