The recent Baltimore Uprising has brought attention to many of the issues that exist here in Baltimore, including the persistence of inequities and segregation in our neighborhoods. Meanwhile, the Opportunity Collaborative and the Baltimore Regional Plan for Sustainable Development have outlined a set of strategies to address the housing, transportation, and workforce development issues of not only our city, but our entire metropolitan area.
What’s next for the future of Baltimore? That answer is up to us, as the citizens and residents of this region. We invite you to join CPHA and leaders from around the region to discuss the housing, transportation, and community development needs of greater Baltimore – and to determine how we can work together to meet those needs. This interactive workshop will focus on developing action steps that CPHA and our partners can move forward to make Baltimore better.
Our panel will include:
- Don Fry, head of the Greater Baltimore Committee
- Brandon Scott, 2nd District City Councilman
- Antonio Hayes, 40th District State Delegate
- Anthony Scott, community activist, 2015 Mayoral Fellow, and graduate student at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs
- Chris Forrest, President of the York Road Partnership
- Holly Freishtat, Baltimore City Food Policy Director
Breakout sessions will include topics such as:
- Job creation and training
- Equitable development
- Health and food access
- Coordinating efforts
The workshop is taking place:
Thursday, June 25
Coppin State University, Talon Center
