• At our 12th Annual Legislative Session, members formally adopted the CONNECT Climate Action Plan. The Plan highlights our vulnerabilities, includes the first inventory of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from each member’s community-wide activities, establishes a feasible emissions reduction target, and outlines potential actions identified by stakeholders to achieve our emissions reduction, equity, and resilience goals.

  • Recordings now available! The two-day, 2021 Pre-Arrest Diversion Summit brought together community members, advocates, government officials, first responders, service providers, and other stakeholders to support them in bringing pre-arrest diversion programs to Allegheny County.

  • Be involved with one of our three working groups: Economic & Environmental Development, Infrastructure & Utilities Coordination, and Public Safety, Health, & Human Resources.

  • LEAD is a community-based diversion approach with the goals of improving public safety and public order, and reducing unnecessary justice system involvement of people who participate in the program.

  • We are very thankful to our many sponsors who make our events possible.

  • We are so very sad to share the news of the passing of our friend Dave, our founding advisor, our region's biggest fan, our greatest champion at the University of Pittsburgh, and the incredible spark plug for so much of what CONNECT is today.
