PIIN has been a member of Pittsburgh UNITED since 2007. Pittsburgh UNITED brings community, unions, environmental groups and the faith community together to advance social and economic justice by working to assure that low and moderate-income communities and working families are able to share in the prosperity that results from development. PIIN, as the faith-based component, works alongside the the Service Employees International Union Local 32BJ, the Sierra Club, Action United, the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 23, the Mon Valley Unemployed Committee, the Hill District Consensus Group, Clean Water Action, the Pittsburgh Branch of the NAACP, Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP), Iron Workers Local 3, United Steel Workers International, and Just Harvest. Pittsburgh UNITED is coordinating a partnership of PIIN and five environmental and community organizations to ensure the federally mandated ALCOSAN sewer fix includes green technologies and that the jobs created are accessible to people in our communities.
