LOCAL & NATIONAL MISSION
Supporting a variety of local ministries in the Pittsburgh area
and responding to needs in our nation.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is taking specific action to confront the societal and racial issues facing black communities in the U.S. by living into a new church initiative to address the plight of African American males in our country. The initiative followed an action approved by the PC(USA) 222nd General Assembly which calls for the church to support programs to assist African American males in five cities: Baltimore, Charlotte, Cleveland, New York and Pittsburgh.
Freedom Rising was created to tackle high unemployment, mass incarceration, substance abuse and other problems that disproportionately affect African-American males.
The late Rev. Eugene "Freedom" Blackwell (pictured) was a co-author and visionary for this project.
