It is with great sorrow that we share the passing of our beloved economic justice leader and a great champion of change.

Even though Al's swift transition on May 17, 2022, was unexpected, he has left a blueprint for us all to follow as we continue to be about seeking economic justice for Black and Latino Communities!

His most recent labor of love was the upcoming national summit, to be held in Clearwater, Florida. We commit to you that the summit will happen in August and it will be done in honor of our great leader and friend, Al Piña. More details will follow soon.


Please keep the Piña family in your thought and prayers during this difficult time.

It is with deep sorrow that I bring condolences to all of you who loved and followed the dreams and aspirations of Al Pina.  I was grief-stricken when I read the news just lately after seeing Al in March 2022.  I will miss his leadership and enthusiasm.

Carry on the Dream and Vision.
