Movements are born of critical connections rather than critical mass.

The Pittsburgh Racial Justice Summit and Racial Justice Town Hall are run by a team of volunteers and we need your help! Our volunteers play a number of crucial roles before, during, and after the events. Won’t you support racial justice organizing in your community?

Our volunteers do all of this and more:

  • Create welcome packets
  • Sort recycling
  • Take notes during presentations
  • Prepare breakfast and lunch
  • Staff registration tables
  • Greet attendees
  • Assist with tech needs

Please sign up to volunteer at the Summit or Racial Justice Town Hall, and the volunteer committee will contact you in the coming weeks.

I Want to Volunteer

We need a bunch of help leading up to the Summit.

Food prep is one area that requires many volunteers. We will be doing food prep the entire week leading up to the Summit at East End Cooperative Ministry.

Any help you can be during this time would be greatly appreciated.

  • Please provide your phone number so that we can follow up. Indicate if texting is ok.
  • Check as many as you'd like
  • Check all that apply
  • Burritos will be rolled in the week leading up to the summit at East End Cooperative Ministry. To take part in the burrito rolling please select all dates that you will be available.
  • As a volunteer of the 21st Annual Pittsburgh Racial Justice Summit I agree to abide by the policies and procedures. I understand that I will be volunteering at my own risk and that the organization or its affiliates cannot assume any responsibility for any liability for any accident, injury or health problem which may arise from any volunteer work I perform. I agree that all the work I do is on a volunteer basis and I am not eligible to receive any monetary payment or reward.

Thank you for your commitment!
