Significant progress has been made on regional expansion in 2011-2012. From its inception, PIIN was conceived as a regional organization. In its first decade, most PIIN congregations were urban and PIIN issues were primarily those impacting the urban poor and working class. PIIN will continue to grow its base in Pittsburgh and the first ring suburbs and focus its energy on the issues facing its core populations. At the same time, a Regional Expansion Team of clergy leaders is focused on bringing on board new congregations from suburban Allegheny County. We are currently working with a group of congregations in the North Hills. Another cluster is ready to form in the eastern suburbs of Monroeville and Penn Hills, and we are also engaging congregations in the South Hills. Our goal is to build a strong base in all parts of the county as well as adjacent counties. If PIIN and its partners are to fundamentally improve the situation of our congregations and communities, we will need a base that can influence decisions in the county, the region and the state.
