Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto unveils Office of Equity

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto Friday signed an executive order creating the city’s first ever Office of Equity. According to Peduto the office, which will replace the Bureau of Neighborhood Empowerment, will focus on addressing inequality throughout the city.

“Based upon the research from the Equity Indicators Report, OnePGH, and the concerns I hear from constituents daily, we know we have more work to do on equity but I am proud of what this administration has been able to do thus far,” Peduto said in a press conference Friday.
