Racial Equity Monitoring Project needs volunteers

The Racial Equity Monitoring Project needs volunteers to monitor official meetings and hearings whose stated purpose is to provide equal opportunity and treatment for. Due to the high rate of regional disparities for African Americans, this will be the primary focus population.


We deploy citizens to bring the processes of official agencies, offices, and bodies back to the community in order to ensure that meetings, policies, agencies and events designed to provide equal opportunity serve their established purpose. WHERE? REMP monitors public agencies including those related to employment, health, criminal justice, education, elections, economic development, construction and trades, and any agency that affects quality of life for the citizens of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County.


You don’t need to be an expert, just be willing to devote a few hours to helping ensure transparency and opportunity. We will provide you with training and supplies.

HOW? To get involved, contact Project Coordinator:

Celeste Taylor at or 412-670-0937

The Racial Equity and Monitoring Project is an initiative of the Black Political Empowerment Project (B-PEP) has received funding from a Heinz Endowment seed grant.
