On Wednesday October 24th from 6:00PM-7:30PM, members of Maryland Communities United will be speaking in the SSW Auditorium concerning their campaigns for social justice. "Founded in 2010, the mission of Communities United (CU) is to organize and empower low income Marylanders to achieve transformative change on issues of racial, economic, and social justice. Our organizing is centered in Baltimore. Our community organizing model hinges on intensive member engagement and leadership development. We engage and build leadership among those most directly impacted by injustice – racism, poverty, trauma, addiction, criminalization – to build resilient grassroots power among those historically shut out of Baltimore’s economic and political life." Please join the Wednesday evening SOWK631ers in learning from and being inspired by Communities United's work for social justice.
