Collectively, we share an interest in furthering the Pittsburgh region and we commit to:
-- Standing for policies that promote the same openness, inclusion, and strength that gave us the opportunity to contribute to the fabric of our region. Had these doors been closed, the very institutions that once built and continue to rebuild our economy would not exist.
-- Welcoming people of all nationalities, faiths, and cultures. Because it is not only what is right and just, it is how we will advance. Our economy, our institutions, our culture, our vibrancy: these are all strengthened when we uphold the rights of all of our neighbors.
-- Amplifying a more welcoming culture across the many campuses, businesses, places of worship, and institutions we represent.
It is in our national interest to collaborate with the global community, while simultaneously creating opportunities locally where all of our residents can participate fully in public life.
We must remain true to the American values that are the engine of our society. This is what prompted many of our ancestors to set roots in Pittsburgh--across the Mon Valley, throughout Allegheny County, and along Southwestern Pennsylvania--and convinced generations to stay, making our region their home.
We call on all of you to join us.
