love & living:

50 years of building peace through justice

We are on the verge of finally connecting the dots in the minds and actions of our society between the struggles to end war, poverty and discrimination. We need your help to raise $50,000 this year to escalate the movement in Pittsburgh so it can resonate throughout the world. 

  • Your sponsorship will create the capacity to take $34 million out of the hands of radical anti-immigrant hate groups through the Drop Colcom campaign.

  • You can help us fill busloads of Pittsburghers to join nationwide mobilizations with the Poor People’s Campaign.

  • Your contributions keep our Garfield Thrift Store thriving as a community space and a vital resource for people lacking access to clothing and household furnishing. 

  • Every dollar allows TMC to contribute material support to actions and rallies and provides the space and experience for you to do the work most meaningful to you. 

We hope you’ll choose a sponsorship amount that truly reflects a major commitment for you and, in turn, we’d love to work with you on ways we can uplift your support and your organization through forms of advertising that most benefit you.
