Climate Action Summit

Urban Matters

Urban Matters is an Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) arts and education program rooted in social justice. Its primary goal is to cultivate a more educated and engaged group of young people in Pittsburgh's most distressed and predominately African-American communities.

Urban Matters participants use research, interviews and art to create tools to help demystify urban policies and increase participation in decision-making processes that impact and shape their communities. Learn more about this program on their website.
