Mapping Pittsburgh's Power Elite: County Council

Event-Date: 
Thursday, June 6, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

A hands-on research session, co-sponsored by The Thomas Merton Center and powered by LittleSis. Bring a laptop, if you have or can borrow one.

We welcome first-timers and people returning from previous power mapping events. There will be a brief presentation from Clean Air Council and a refresher on LittleSis for new folks. Returnees can team up and get straight to work.


Please note the change of location to One Smithfield Street (Downtown). There is free parking in their gated lot for this event. Please contact gabriel@thomasmertoncenter.org with any accessibility or childcare requests.

Mapping Pittsburgh’s power elite is an ongoing volunteer project to research and share useful info about powerful people and organizations affecting our region. Join us as we map out the connections of politicians, CEOs, real estate developers, lobbyists, corporate boards, and the rest of the power network.

This session's topic is County Council, an oft-overlooked but powerful part of local government. We will be researching Council members to find out what might influence them to take our climate emergency and poor air quality more seriously.
