First! Hi everyone! Happy to be here!
Jam Hammond, PghCHR

Not sure if this is going to be one of the questions: beyond putting members of marginalized communities in charge (which is important), how can government agencies and large nonprofits address the mistrust that is contributing to poor health outcomes past, present, and future?
Jay Ting Walker
27:11
Who is the "we" Dr. Noble is referring to again? The group calling for this.
Jay Ting Walker
27:19
Dr. Maseru*
Carol Hardeman
36:33
The AMI and income inequality is unrealistic
Jam Hammond, PghCHR
39:28
Dawn, for Pgh and AC residents farther out of the city without cars, is 412 Food Rescue an option and what might be some other options?
Carol Hardeman
46:30
Its obvious that the 1% continues to set in motion a growing disenchantment among poor people along major dimensions such as earning, housing, employment, education, transportation...just to name a few.
Carol Hardeman
47:26
Me either Monica
anupama jain
47:32
Thank you for all the heavy lifting Noble, Dawn, and Monica are doing for some of our most vulnerable— and always already resilient- communities!
anupama jain
48:35
And thanks to Jackie Smith/Human Rights Alliance folks locally who remind us that everyone has universal rights, not just those with money, citizenship, etc.

Megan Stanley and Jam Hammond of CHR rock!!
Carol Hardeman
49:59
We need a lobby team to sit at every level of government
Jam Hammond, PghCHR
50:22
Thank you anu! Thank you also to GEC. Yesterday’s real-talk session about gendered outcomes was great :).
Monica_Ruiz
51:45
Agreed Carol
Dawn Plummer
52:07
Yes! Carol
Carol Hardeman
52:08
I agree with Noble. Poverty had been swept under the rug for far too long!
Dristas, Veronica M
01:08:37
We are now opening the chat to questions
Carol Hardeman
01:08:49
Yes, our people support has to continue before greedy developers and the 1% get back to doing business as usual!! We have to stand strong. This is a wakeup call since we are doing the work that the government doesn't want to do. It's our public money. Let's get it!
Carol Hardeman
01:10:11
We have to get a seat at the table for all people!
Jay Ting Walker
01:10:19
Also interesting how the foundation money is flowing now when we had these food security/housing problems the whole time.
Carol Hardeman
01:11:41
That's because the Foundations put us in a box and pit us against one another....then feed us crumbs!
Thistle Elias
01:11:47
AMEN Monica
Carol Hardeman
01:13:30
How can we make this a people centered movement?
Jam Hammond, PghCHR
01:17:13
Thanks, Dr. Maseru!
Monica_Ruiz
01:17:43
Yes!!!
Jam Hammond, PghCHR
01:18:25
Thanks, Megan!
Dristas, Veronica M
01:20:02
There is time for more questions
Jay Ting Walker
01:22:40
So much funding seems to be federal funding and that's the most inacessible/ least responsive level of government.
Megan Stanley
01:22:45
I’d like to ask the data people on this call (Anne, Jason, Bob, etc.) how we can use data about this crisis in the long-term?
Jenna Napoleone
01:23:26
I agree with what has been said up until this point. Thank you everyone for very important insights. I am always thinking about "intervention" Ideas. What are some effective Interventions that could be implemented in a relatively short amount of time to help those who need help the most during these times? (Rather than thinking about long term solutions that might take too much time to currently implement)
Smith, Jackie

Hi Megan. We’re doing what we can to support organizations who are both trying to care for their neighborhoods and communities through the crisis and strategizing for how to shift the system to a more equitable place afterward. This includes doing work to make the ACHD covid data viewable through a racial equity lens in support of the work Noble is talking about, helping look at housing and employment impacts vs race and income to help groups working on behalf of vulnerable residents, etc.
Megan Stanley
01:29:29
Carol- I’d also recommend a participatory budgeting model where the public has a large say in how money is spent and local budgets are created
Jay Ting Walker
01:30:34
Is there any participatory budgeting work shaping up around the county? I know the city does their capital budget delivberative forums but haven't heard about other examples.
Carol Hardeman
01:30:55
I agree with you Monica!
Jam Hammond, PghCHR
01:32:03

We are still taking and investigating complaints.
Thistle Elias
01:36:15
Data sharing and continued coalition building (and push for census participation and voting!) is critical to sustain push for equitable change after the broader public anger and awareness wanes
Jenna Napoleone
01:37:14
Great ideas, Dr. Elias!
Edith’s iPad
01:38:41
how do we start working together, not everybody pushing for their own group?
Jam Hammond, PghCHR
01:40:51
@Edith Transparency and coalition building.
