COVID Stories PGH is a research and story-gathering project of the Metro-Urban Institute at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. With the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation, we are studying and documenting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the African American and Latinx communities of Pittsburgh, and providing support to nonprofits that serve them.
