During July and August we collected $440 for the Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN), which brings together people of different faiths to promote social justice. They are currently working on green infrastructure that will modernize our water and sewage system, raising the minimum wage, enacting better education funding, and improvements to public safety including diversifying the police force and ending police brutality.
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 Pitttsburgh’s North Side and beyond. So far we have collected and distributed $20,333 to 23 justice partners. If you know of an organization or project doing good work contact <sharetheplate at alleghenyuu.org>.
