Ensuring Systematically Disenfranchised Communities Achieve Economic Justice

Repair the World Pittsburgh is proud to partner with local partner organization Catapult Greater Pittsburgh

At Catapult Greater Pittsburgh we focus on providing emergency resource distribution, peer-to-peer support, wealth building, trauma-informed financial counseling, and policy advocacy. This work is important to us because we work to ensure that systematically disenfranchised communities can meaningfully achieve economic justice and lead dignified and equitable lives. In order to do that, we focus on putting people first and provide ways through our programming so that Black people in the city can have a path to homeownership, financial education, entrepreneurship, and access to having their basic needs fulfilled.

About the Series

This #BlackHistoryMonth Repair the World is highlighting Black-led orgs, service partners who are advancing and centering Diversity Equity and Inclusion work and prioritizing BIPOC leadership in their orgs, and Black Community Leaders that we serve with across our communities. Our impact would not be possible without them. Our Jewish values of solidarity, achdoot, and strengthening each other, hitchazkut, remind us that nothing is possible without meaningful relationships. Our partners and colleagues are critical to our ability to understand and act thoughtfully. When we lift up, celebrate, and appreciate others, we ultimately work towards a stronger outcome.
