Sacred Conversations on Race - Kickoff Conversation
Join Us! - RSVP Here

On October 1st, PIIN will launch Sacred Conversations on Race + Action - a series of congregation-based discussions designed to provide a safe space to discuss the race and racism in our country and in our communities. We will reflect on our experiences, challenge one another to expand our own levels of personal awareness, and ultimately, take action.

Join us as we take the first step toward dismantling structural racism through conversation and working for justice.


Big Win for Education Funding

For months, PIIN members have been travelling to Harrisburg for rallies in support of a fair education formula for our schools. This week it paid off when both the Senate and the House passed legislation writing the bipartisan formula we've been fighting for into law.

The gap between the richest schools and the poorest schools in Pennsylvania is the worst in the country. This formula means that state funding for schools will finally take objective measures like student enrollment and local tax contributions into account when distributing funds to schools.

But before every child in Pennsylvania has an equal chance at success regardless of what ZIP code they live in, the legislature has to increasing the funding that goes through the new formula. The most recent budget only increased education funding by half of what we actually needed to start turning our schools around. As the budget process heats up again in advance of the June 30th deadline, we need to keep the pressure on.
