Oct 21: Public Action Meeting on transit and other problems

PIIN Public Action Meeting will seek action on transit funding and other regional problems
The Port Authority’s current funding crisis (with a 35% service cutback planned for next March) will be among issues addressed at a Public Action Meeting of the Pittsburgh Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN). The public is urged to attend—no admission charge.

1000 PIIN members and supporters—committed to working together for greater justice and equity in this region, state, and nation—are expected to attend. They will challenge local, state, and national public officials, as well as candidates for public office, to agree to specific remedies to the transit funding shortage; poor school performance; racial profiling; need for immigration law reform; and gun violence.

PIIN is an interracial alliance of more than 40 congregations representing many faiths working to realize their shared values through civic engagement on issues identified by their members.

7 - 8:30 pm, at Rodef Shalom, 4905 Fifth Avenue, (Oakland). Doors will open at 6:15. Free and open to the public. For more information, contact: PIIN at (412) 621-9230 or office@piin.org; www.piin.org
