As one of PUMP’s Advocacy + Public Policy Agenda key themes, we support a Diverse + Connected Region.

The ability for people to affordably and conveniently commute around Pittsburgh, addressing systemic inequities, and affordable neighborhoods are hallmarks of a progressive, human-centered community that is welcoming to all.

  1. Visibility, recognition, and representation of positive diverse individuals, cultures, and values in leadership and positions of power.
  2. Diverse, inclusive, affordable neighborhoods and communities.
  3. World-class, multi-modal transportation infrastructure that supports and fosters community and regional connectivity.
  4. Spaces and opportunities for all residents to engage in dialogue and action to address diversity, inclusion, social justice and racism.
  5. Protection and support for immigrants, refugees, formerly incarcerated individuals, and other vulnerable populations.
  6. Affordable accessible high-speed internet and leading-edge technology for all.
