On Monday Pittsburgh and 10 other cities will formally join Cities for Citizenship, an initiative launched by Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago in partnership with Citi, the founding corporate partner, which aims to increase citizenship among eligible U.S. permanent residents to forge more inclusive and economically robust cities.
Leading officials from Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chattanooga, Denver, Milwaukee, Nashville, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. will announce their active participation in this growing initiative at a special event during the National Immigrant Integration Conference (NIIC 2014).

On Tuesday, June 11, 2013, Pittsburgh City Council will pass a Will of Council opposing PA Senate Bill 975, which would open Pennsylvania to predatory lending practices that endanger working families. The so-called “consumer protection” measure would:
- weaken Pennsylvania’s existing unethical lending statutes
- permit annual percentage rate (APR) finance charges in excess of 300% on a two-week balloon loan
- permit lending without considering the customer’s ability to repay the loan
- permit lenders to make virtually unlimited consecutive loans against every paycheck
Effective Jan 1, 2013, the City will no longer collect televisions, computers and computer peripherals at the curb.
