All In Pittsburgh approach
Racial equity and inclusion
Community voice and power
Accountability to results
Policy and systems change
All In Pittsburgh evolved from conversations that began between Neighborhood Allies and Urban Innovation 21 after the first P4 Summit in 2015. In an effort to make Pittsburgh more racially and economically inclusive, these two local partners engaged PolicyLink, a national research and action institute advancing racial and economic equity, to create a shared definition for equitable development and craft an agenda to make it the reality.
Between February 2015 and September 2016, the local coalition undertook a research and engagement process to craft a shared definition of equitable development and put forth an action agenda for making equitable development Pittsburgh’s reality. In September 2016, we unveiled Equitable Development: The Path to an All In Pittsburgh, a report outlining a roadmap to ensure everyone participates in and benefits from the region’s economic transformation.
Our coalition has now expanded and is comprised of Neighborhood Allies, UrbanKind Institute, Mongalo-Winston Consulting, and PolicyLink. We are now working together to implement these recommendations, and have assembled a multi-sector steering committee to drive change and advance the work. The organizations on the committee have a demonstrated commitment to advancing racial equity in Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods and throughout the region.
The Heinz Endowments and The Pittsburgh Foundation, while leading by example through P4 and 100 Percent Pittsburgh respectively, have continued to collaborate on this major effort to forge a new model of urban growth and development that is innovative, inclusive and sustainable.
