our ADVISORy group

The EJGP Advisory Group is made up of non-profit executive directors and program directors, leaders of community-based organizations, and others. Together, they represent all of the EJGP topic areas (plus a few others) and different neighborhoods and municipalities. Many of these individuals also lead or participate in networks for their specific issue-areas. 

This group meets every other month to discuss the direction and work of the network and to share updates on campaigns and projects. Between meetings, members connect with Project Team members to discuss EJGP activities and EJGP-supported network member campaigns. Together, they are a group of leading advocates focused on creating healthy, equitable, and just communities in Greater Pittsburgh.
