Honors College Community Café: Discussion with House Representative Sara Innamorato

Join us for our final Community Cafe of the fall term with House Representative Sara Innamorato! 

Representative Innamorato is guided by a mission: raising the playing field to ensure that all Pennsylvanians have equal access to opportunities to lead a life with dignity. To Innamorato, that means putting people first, which is why she advocates for increased transparency and reform in Harrisburg, a fair tax system, economic dignity through fair pay and the right to a union, affordable housing, clean air and water, and quality public schools.

Growing up in a middle-class family in Ross Township, Innamorato learned early on that middle-class roots can be fragile and don’t necessarily guarantee a secure future. To the outward eye, Innamorato had the appearance of a secure life. What she didn’t know, however, was that her father was living with a terrible secret: an accident he suffered before her birth had led to opioid addiction. After her father went through several unsuccessful rehab attempts, her mother, sister and she left her childhood home and with it their primary source of income and a financially secure future. Thanks to family, friends and neighbors, she said, she rarely found herself without food or a place to stay. After decades of attempts to quit, her father was unable to overcome his addiction and died suddenly in 2009.

After graduating from North Hills High School, Innamorato worked her way through college, graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in business. Innamorato went on to launch her own business, Innamo Co with a mission of “marketing for social good.” Innamorato also co-founded an initiative called “She Runs SWPA,” which aims to empower more women to run for elected office in the region. After spending time encouraging women to run for office, Innamorato was persuaded to run herself. She has served as State Representative for Pennsylvania’s 21st district since 2019.

This will be a hybrid Community Cafe! Students are welcome to attend in-person on the 35th floor of the Cathedral of Learning and everyone is welcome to join virtually through Zoom. Please make sure you register here and submit your questions ahead of time! 

Tuesday, November 30 at 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
