We are a non-partisan, grassroots organization whose mission is to encourage Wilkinsburg residents’ participation in local government. We started in 2002 as “living room” meetings among neighbors who were dissatisfied with the lack of stability and accountability in our Borough government.
In the past several years, we have helped elect our Mayor, six council members, two school board directors, and a tax collector. NUW-endorsed elected officials have made substantial headway in stabilizing the Borough government, bringing significant reinvestment to our community, and promoting professionalism and ethical conduct among our governing bodies and municipal staff.
However, there is so much work yet to be done, and we need your help to continue this important effort. Local government affects your life daily and directly. Please use this site as a resource to find ways to get involved. Be a part of the positive change taking place in Wilkinsburg!
