Cardin to Discuss Baltimore Revitalization with Local Non-profit and Foundation Leaders


Senator also to explore details of newly introduced BALTIMORE Act


Monday, July 6 at 10:00 AM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) will join leaders of Baltimore-area foundations and non-profit organizations to discuss the challenges and opportunities in efforts to reinvigorate the city following the tragic aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray, including the reforms contained in Senator Cardin’s recently introduced BALTIMORE Act proposal.

“In conversations with those harmed by the recent civil unrest, I’ve heard consistent notes of hope and optimism sounding through the pain. Those of us born and raised in Baltimore harbor something in common: an unshakeable appreciation for this great American city. We are determined to use recent events to find ways to make Baltimore an even better place to live, visit and do business,” said Senator Cardin. “Our roundtable conversation with the leaders of Baltimore-area non-profits and charitable foundations will showcase the work and perspectives of those who are working for change where we need it most.”
