Trending on GoFundMe: Two Pittsburgh Church Groups Traveling to Newly Opened African American History Museum in DC

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. October 19, 2016 - Two college church groups from Pittsburgh have partnered to create the Race, Rhetoric, Relationship, & Reconciliation Project. Established by New Vision Fellowship, a mostly black campus group at Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) and the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt), and the Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, a mostly white campus group at Pitt, these two organizations are collaborating to create a dialogue about race in the United States. Working together, they established a GoFundMe campaign to help fundraise for their travel expenses to the newly opened National Museum of African American History and Culture.

In one of over 13 updates about their learning and progress toward their $1,500 goal, Gene Tibbs, a member of the campus ministry, wrote, “we'll travel together, continuing our on-going and provocative dialogue about race, justice and unity in the context of travel, community and curated American history.”
