The Pittsburgh A. Philip Randolph Institute, founded in the year of 1968,is dedicated to developing programs that will extend democracy to those who have been traditionally disfranchised or discouraged from participating in the political system, strengthening political alliances needed to assure democratic social change and projecting social and economic programs that will improve the lives of all Americans.

To achieve these goals, the Pittsburgh A. Philip Randolph institute believes that a broad based coalition of those forces who believe in social progress for minorities, the poor and working people, should be created with the Labor Movement occupying a pivotal role in this alliance since it serves as a bi racial organizational vehicle of working people and has a principled commitment to social change. Our programs seek to enhance the role of all the trade unionists.

Since its formation, the policies and programs of the Institute have been governed by strict adherence to the political values and principled exemplified by our founder, A. Philip Randolph, 1889-1979.
