  • Redefining Equity, Equality, and Justice in Community Development: Community Development Summit

    Leave a Comment

    The 10th Annual Community Development Summit will take place on May 13-14, 2020 at the Omni William Penn Hotel, Downtown Pittsburgh.
    PCRG’s annual Summit features exciting keynote speakers and engaging breakout sessions designed to cover the myriad of issues that surround community development. We honor and lift up the work of our members and partners, providing access to the state of the art in community and economic development. Sessions cover topics from strategies for increasing financial resources available to communities to land use topics such community planning, land recycling and affordable housing, mobility equity and transit-oriented development, and community capacity and organizing.

    The Summit is a truly regional event, drawing speakers and participants not only from PCRG member organizations and neighborhoods, but also from surrounding cities, the broader region, and across the country. PCRG strives to make the Summit accessible to everyone who is passionate about rebuilding and sustaining healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities – from community development professionals and elected officials to neighborhood volunteers.

    Each year’s Summit focuses on a different theme that guides the selection of keynotes, session presenters, and more. This year’s theme – [Re] defining Equity, Equality, and Justice in Community Development – hones in on the challenges and opportunities in creating communities that lift up people of all races, genders, and backgrounds onto an even field of opportunity.
