Rally to Open Sue Murray Pool
June 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sue Murray Pool is delayed from opening, with Jack Stack and Riverview being the only pools open in the Northside.
The City of Pittsburgh is planning to open two pools in the Northside that serve a higher proportion of middle class and wealthy white residents, while leaving a pool that serves lower and middle income black families closed.
Concerns about violence and drug use in the neighborhood surrounding the pool and a shortage of lifeguards were listed as reasons for the delay.
Join the Rally: Charles Street Valley residents are gathering with members of other Northside communities to peacefully demonstrate and raise our voices. We believe that opening the pool with safety measures in place will keep our community safe by positively engaging youth.
