BUILD listens to 1,100 Residents, Ratifies Plan to Fight Baltimore Violence

BUILD listens to 1,100 Residents, Ratifies Plan to Fight Baltimore Violence

Sunday, February 25, 2018
BUILD

BUILD trains 120 members and leaders on January 13, 2018 to rebuild city of Baltimore
 
Baltimore’s unprecedented violence last year made national news, and BUILD responded by listening to approximately 1,100 city residents about their experiences with violent crime and what they most 

want the Mayor and City officials to act on immediately. BUILD organizers and institutions documented each conversation and identified the top issues for action as: Youth Trauma & Opportunity; AddictionRecovery; Policing; and Jobs & Economic Opportunity. The action plan was ratified by 150 attendees at a Citywide Action Team meeting in late 2017.
 
BUILD has already trained 120 members and leaders to be the Nehemiahs that will rebuild a broken city and formed issue action teams to research and turn the large-scale problems the community faces into actionable issues.
