Due to the ongoing inclement weather, the icy and snowy condition of Market Square and our desire to create the best experience for this day of action, @NewVoicesPgh is moving @1BillionPgh indoors to the DoubleTree Hotel Downtown Pittsburgh, 1 Bigelow Square (near the corner of 6th Avenue and Ross Street)!
Please share, post, tweet, email and text over the next 24 hours to ensure everyone knows the new location. Thanks for your understanding and support. Stay tuned to this event page and onebillionrisingpgh.org. For more information, call 412.450.0290 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
