Exciting news - PFC welcomes Krystal (Alex) Jackson as our new paid Administrator!
It’s a "big deal" when an all-volunteer non-profit is finally able to bring on a paid staffer who can help the organization fulfill its Mission in the community -
PFC is lucky to have found someone who’s up to the challenge!
Many of you know Alex Jackson, (she/her/hers) a member of our Community who has given generously of her time, talent and treasure. Alex is Chair of PFC’s Activism Committee, a former PFC Board Member, and contributes to all our efforts to promote social and racial justice, separation of church and state, and science, reason and humanist values in the greater Pittsburgh Community. And let’s not forget evidence-based public policy, so critical to our success in minimizing the impact of the current pandemic!
Alex will be working as a contract Administrator for PFC on a half-time basis, while also pursuing a M.S. in Public Policy and Management at CMU’s John Heinz III College. Her undergraduate degree from CMU is in the area of Ethics, History and Public Policy, with a minor in Physics. Alex also currently participates with the CMU Humanist League (past President) and is an Executive member of the CMU Black Activism Committee.
Alex will be working closely with me and all the PFC Committee Chairs as we strive together with our greatest asset – our Members - to promote Science, Reason and Humanist values in the greater Pittsburgh Community.
I want to thank all of you who have generously supported PFC with your Membership fees and donations over the years and especially our all-volunteer Board of Directors, whose regular financial contributions still fund a majority of our expenses and whose extraordinary recent gifts have enabled us to fully fund this position for a full 12 months!
My friends, you’ll doubtless see Alex soon at one of our virtual online events; please join me and offer her a warm PFC welcome!

Public Policy Participation and Political Action
If you're from the Pittsburgh area and passionate about secularism the Public Policy Participation Committee is the place for you! We're currently working on local and state-level issues, along side our national affiliates, and seek to be a respected voice for the secular community. We are a welcoming and accepting committee that mainly focuses on forming public policy to support equal representation and the separation of government from religion. Please see PFC's calendar for our upcoming meetings, visit our page for ways to take action now, and email Marie to join PFC's Public Policy Participation Committee today!
