About the Summit Against Racism

SAVE THE DATE: 20th Annual Summit Against Racism: Saturday, January 20, 2018, at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary 616 N. Highland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206

The annual Summit Against Racism is a one-day conference that happens the Saturday after Martin Luther King Day.  The first Summit took place in 1998 after the heartbreaking death of Jonny Gammage, a Pittsburgher, who was brutally murdered by 5 police officers.

The Summit is a day for open dialogue, to generate ideas and action, to move the Pittsburgh region forward into a place we can be proud to call home. The workshops address current and emerging challenges facing our region and nation.

The conference is a program of the Black & White Reunion and coordinated by a planning committee made up of volunteers.  Twice in the history of the Summit has their been financial resources to pay a part-time coordinator.

This gathering is an effort to build Pittsburgh’s most important bridges, the bridges that span our relationships and strengthen the justice movement in our steel city.

We are always looking for new members to our planning committee. Please complete this form to sign-up: http://bit.ly/VolunteerSAR20.
