From Grief to Action

From Grief to Action

In June 2020, CAASI launched the Grief to Action (G2A) volunteering platform to support the effort to fight the systemic racism that has been laid bare by the death of George Floyd and countless others. To date, over 100 volunteers (including 40+ non-Pitt community members) have contributed their expertise in our weekly Friday meeting.

G2A volunteers have developed three interdisciplinary data-driven projects: a tool to facilitate transparency in the police accountability process, a tool to connect BIPOC-owned businesses with the university community, and an LGBTQIA+ single use bathroom finder.
