Reception for Chief McLeay
Project Destiny hosted a meet and greet for Chief McLay on Friday December 19th. Lisa Sylvestry (pictured her) from WPXI covered the event which was the 3rd in a series of meetings with Pittsburgh residents to have a conversation with incoming Police Chief. The event was sponsored by The Black Political Empowerment Project (B-PEP), the Alliance for Police Accountability (APA) & The North Side Pastors Alliance in partnership with African American Women for Political Change (AAWPC), the Black & White Reunion (BWR), and Black Women for Positive Change, Operation Better Block, The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh and The Western PA Black Political Assembly (WPBPA).

Chief McLay introduced his command staff and then the floor was opened up to questions, suggestions and recommendations from the audience.
