With the mission to build healthy families and communities by way of activation, education and mobilization, the Community Empowerment Association, Inc. (CEA) over the last decade has been tirelessly serving thousands of disadvantaged and minority families throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area. Since 2003, CEA has been sponsoring the Black Family Reunion as an opportunity for Allegheny County residents to come together for two days to celebrate the Black Family. It has been extremely well attended over the years and there have been no incidents of violence reported. Thousands of people from many communities throughout Allegheny County come together, without incidence, to enjoy 3 days of recreation, entertainment, relaxation, education, & networking. It serves as a testimony to the fact that African Americans from many different walks of life can come together and enjoy each other without violence.

Aiming to build, foster, and empower individuals through jobs, education, housing, economic development, and family support services; we strive to heavily incorporate these five aspects into the two-day event. Events include the "Peace In The Hood" Three on Three Basketball and Slam Dunk Tournament, performances of dance, jazz, R&B, spoken word, vendors, family feud, panel discussions, network tents, health screenings, and mountain climbing, moon jump, arts and crafts for the youth.
