On November 21st, 2013, we will host our Fall Social 2013: A Benefit for Global Solutions Pittsburgh at the Society for Contemporary Craft (2100 Smallman St.), from 6-9 PM. This evening will help to support our education and public programs throughout the year, including exposing middle school students to other cultures, helping to prepare college students to compete in a global market place, engaging young professionals in human rights and social justice service, and working to broaden the horizons of our communities.
