There was a great feature of one of our partner programs, Circles East Liberty, in Repair The World Pittsburgh‘s latest newsletter! Circles fosters relationships that cross socio-economic bounds and work to lift families and individuals out of generational poverty. Read what Repair the world had to say about the program below and in their newsletter here.
“Our East Liberty Circles Group is a slice of our neighborhood— young and old, rich and poor, black, white, Hispanic and other! There are usually lots of laughs, and always lots of learning as we share our different life experiences. We are committed to understanding each other, helping each other, and learning together. We talk openly about money, race, barriers, and privilege, which is not always fun. But then we see each other in the neighborhood— people who had nothing in common before Circles, and likely would have never met— and we’re hugging and talking in the toy aisle at Target. That’s a scene we hope to see repeated thousands of times in our mixed-income neighborhood thanks to our Circles Group. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!”
