This organization educates citizens about global issues, how they affect communities, and the need for all communities - including those in the Pittsburgh region - to come up with solutions to address those issues. They also provide opportunities for action and advocacy.
The small staff is passionate about impacting our community and has influenced my understanding of how interconnected all communities are and about the importance of grassroots citizen action.
I was introduced to Global Solutions because they are one of the primary members of the Pittsburgh Darfur Emergency Coalition, another organization that I volunteer with.
