The PMAHCC stands in solidarity with the Jewish community, the Tree of Life Synagogue, and our city as a whole.

Violence, in any of its harmful forms, has no place in our community, especially when directed against innocent human beings targeted because of their race, gender, religious beliefs, or any other personal identifier. Our organization, one of Pittsburgh’s largest and most diverse community engagement non-profits, will continue to cherish diversity and inclusion in our community, and our activities will always promote principles of respect and solidarity applicable to all.

THANK YOU to Wells Fargo for supporting the Casa San Jose youth program Puentes Hacía el Futuro (Bridges to the Future)! Puentes is our out-of-school program for Latino youth ages 8-17, offering homework help, cultural activities, field trips, and much more! Last Saturday they went to Jennings Environmental Education Center near Slippery Rock, where they hiked with a guide who taught them to make a campfire, cook lunch over it (including s'mores), and be safe in the woods.

Latinos make up an increasing share of the U.S. electorate. A record 29 million Latinos were eligible to vote in this year’s midterm elections, accounting for 12.8% of all eligible voters, a new high. While it’s too soon to know how many voted and their turnout rate, Latinos made up an estimated 11% of all voters nationwide on Election Day, nearly matching their share of the U.S. eligible voter population (U.S. citizens ages 18 and older). Here are key takeaways about Latino voters and the 2018 elections.
