Our mission is to eliminate barriers to family thriving in
over-burdened and under-resourced communities.
We do this by centering the voices, lived experiences, goals, and priorities of residents from these communities in the decisions, research, and investments in their communities so that residents are the primary beneficiaries.
We elevate voices that are often excluded.
We assess interconnected challenges and propose human-centered solutions.
We interpret systems and processes to eliminate inequity in our communities.
We center lived experiences in our work, ensuring relevance and usefulness to our communities.
We work to eliminate threats posed by climate change and ongoing environmental degradation.
We are committed to transparency, sustainability, and integrity.
The Equitable & Just Platform Pittsburgh centers the voices and concerns of those in need of resources. We build trust across neighborhoods and topic areas. As a coalition, we support each other in order to imagine and create a better, equitable, and just future! Click the image above to visit the EJPP website and learn more!
