Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG) is an activist group working towards systemic change. We are non-hierarchical, consensus based, and concerned about a wide range of interconnected issues in society. Since our founding in the spring of 2002 we have organized a wide variety of campaigns and actions dealing with issues of war, militarism, labor rights, environmental issues, and global financial institutions. In April 2005, we began working on a local counter-recruitment campaign that has included more than two dozen pickets at our local recruiting hub station, direct actions that have shut the station down, CR presentations and skill shares in other cities, visits and other educational outreach at local high schools, a petition to restrict access of military recruiters at area schools, and actions that confronted recruiters on campuses and in the streets.
This is a non-campus group.
