Good afternoon! My name is Billy Reeves and I am the community policy organizer for Casa San Jose. We are a community resource center for the Latino community here in Pittsburgh and southwestern Pennsylvania. We are located out of Beechview. We provide various services to the community and advocate for the rights of our community members. Since our latino community here in Pittsburgh is growing every day we want the government here to be receptive to the needs of our community but also to all of Pittsburgh’s residents. We recognize that neighborhood associations are integral in sharing the concerns of their residents and we want to bring these concerns to the mayoral candidates running this election. Here at Casa San Jose we are planning to host a mayoral debate between the mayoral candidates on the ballot. This will be a hybrid event and it will be located at the Thunderbird Cafe In Lawrenceville. The debate will take place on Monday, October 11th at 7:00 p.m. . As well this debate will be streamed online and I will be reaching out to the news to inquire if they could air the event live. The debate will cover topics like housing justice, environmental justice, and economic justice and the candidates will have to answer questions from the public as well. In addition, for the event, we will have a limited capacity of around 80 – 90 people. Although the capacity can hold close to double we want to commit to safety and social distancing during the event. In turn depending on the number of co – sponsors we will allot certain seats to co – sponsors. For example, if 44 organizations co – sponsor we will allot two seats to each co – sponsor and each organization can send two people to represent the interests of their organization. Organizations around the city represent the interest of the people so we felt it would be adequate to have a limited in person audience be made up of the co -sponsors who helped make this debate happen. I was wondering if Bend the Arc Pittsburgh would be interested in becoming a co – sponsor. This would mainly entail just sharing our flyers on your social media, making your own flyers and posting them if you feel that is adequate, allowing us to actively state that you are a co – sponsor like putting your name on the co – sponsorship list, if you have the capacity to participate in drafting questions for the debate and if possible contributing $25 – $50 for rental fees, service and staff costs that we have to pay for the event.. Let me know if you are interested. I have been reaching out to many organizations and associations within Pittsburgh and I would love Bend the Arc Pittsburgh to be one of the first to join on. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I am with Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence. I am contacting faith institutions in Pittsburgh about involvement (even during a pandemic) in working to end gun violence in our cities. Philadelphia has witnessed a significant increase in deaths from illegal guns. May I have contact information for someone at Bend the Arc, Pittsburgh who is involved in opposing gun violence? Thanks.

We hope this message finds you well and safe during this challenging time. We are the Challah Back Girls; an initiative founded by four sisters to combine our passion for baking and voice for change to give back to the diverse communities that make up our society. Each week, we sell challah—a special bread in Jewish culture, typically eaten on ceremonial occasions such as the Sabbath—and donate all of our profit to an organization benefiting a social justice issue our society is encountering.
You may have heard about us as the girls who sent Zach Banner challah, but we wanted to introduce ourselves more personally as we are immensely grateful for the important work you do. Last week, we joined the “Standing in Solidarity: A Conversation with Zach Banner and Black and Jewish Pittsburgh Activists” YouTube live to listen to the conversation and learn meaningful insight from the intelligent and diverse panel. We wanted to write to tell you how impactful it was and how much we appreciate all that you do for the Jewish community seeking to engage in racial justice work.
Our partnership with Zach Banner and B3 Foundation was so awesome, and each week we donate somewhere new. We welcome you to check out our webpage (www.challahbackgirls.com) to see where we’re giving to this week, and feel free to challah at us anytime to try some too! (We weren’t kidding when we responded in the YouTube chat about challah-ing back!)

There are too many Jihadists, Sodomites and Illegals in America. I am supporting Trump in 2020 and Pence in 2024!

You’re organization is nothing more that another arm of the Democrat party (the party of hate) and does not represent all Jews. “Progressive” is just another term for Socialism which is quietly destroying this country.

Use your time more wisely, folks. If you really want to see a more moral, upright nation, support Israel, God’s chosen people, and respect the authority God had put in place for this season. He is the One Who saw to it that Mr. Trump won the Presidency. It is His choice to set up Nations and leaders, not ours. Sure, we have a vote, but His decision is always best. And I agree… your organization
speak for all of Pittsburgh! Mr. Trump is absolutely welcome here on the city I was born and raised in.

Why were whites and Jews arrested for protesting in Pittsburgh today? Blacks are not arrested for protesting? Pittsburgh rolls out the red carpet for them to protest!
I’m not racist! I want to know why? I want to know why some have that right to protest and others don’t? It should be a right for all

You don’t speak for Pittsburgh. President Trump is welcome!
You all need to get a new hobby. Trump doesn’t support white nationalism.
What you should consider is supporting Israel, where real Jews are clearly in danger.
2019-10-21 14:27:25 -0400
we surely don’t need another "progressive " group- does that mean infanticide,hatred of all whites and Christians? I,m sure Pres Trump will be deeply hurt by all your idiotic comments! You are the dividers _will pray you see the Light-Jesus,the Savior of the world
