History

The Allegheny Alliance grew out of the political turmoil of the 1960s. Dissatisfied with established political parties, and their activities, the Allegheny Alliance set forth as its goal, "that poverty, war, and injustice must be eliminated through vigorous governmental action." It would try to accomplish its goals by supporting candidates and pressuring and publicizing issues at all levels of government.
