Route for Pittsburgh March for A People's Budget!

On Sunday, May 26, come join for all or part of Pittsburgh's March For a People's Budget, a 6 mile march across Pittsburgh to build momentum around passing a state budget prioritizing services and programs to increase the security, safety, and health of the people of our state - rather than spending millions on locking people up. Don't forget: the march will be followed by the Community Day BBQ, featuring free food, speakers, kids activities, and more opportunities to build community and oppose prison expansion in Pennsylvania.
