Offsite: Community Wealth Building for Transformational Change

Unfortunately this session is completely sold out. Spots remain in this offsite learning experience exploring social justice, youth and culture in Baltimore. 


In the face of decades of social and environmental injustice, the Curtis Bay community of Baltimore City has organized itself around an alternative vision – one rooted in equity, resilience, and community wealth building.  Community members have organized for wins including defeating what would have been the largest trash burning incinerator in the country; building a community garden in response to food access issues; and certifying their schools as Green Schools.

This tour will take place at the Filbert Street Garden and Ben Franklin Center in Curtis Bay, Maryland.  Participants will meet with community leaders to:

  • Learn of the issues impacting community health and how residents rose up in response

  • Hear from community leaders on the power of partnerships and coalitions to organize holistically for community justice

  • Learn how community resiliency work with an equity lens affects the implementation impact of the work on the ground

Organized by EPIP member Megan Milliken, Town Creek Foundation
