Build Civic Power at Strong City Baltimore’s 12th Neighborhood Institute
Strong City Baltimore is postponing Neighborhood Institute 2020, originally scheduled for March 28th at Baltimore City Community College, in accordance with the mandates from state and city leadership about cancelling large-scale events due to public health concerns over the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The annual skill-building conference for neighborhood leaders will be rescheduled to fall 2020.
Neighborhood Institute, Strong City Baltimore’s annual skill-building conference for neighborhood leaders, activists, and nonprofit professionals, returns with a day of learning that reflects these extraordinary times for our city and nation. With election season in full swing and the Census count kicking into high gear, Strong City is joining forces with other local organizations to focus Neighborhood Institute’s content on the theme “Building Civic Power.”
Saturday, March 28, 2020
8:30am to 3:30pm
Baltimore City Community College
The event will feature more than 40 workshops, trainings, and discussions organized into tracks like “Civic Engagement, Civic Power,” “Telling Baltimore’s Story,” “Racial Justice and Equity,” and “Revitalizing Neighborhoods.”
Attendees can learn how to fight blight in their neighborhood, raise funds for their organization, encourage civic engagement in “hard to persuade” communities, and dozens of other useful skills. There will also be panel discussions on “Building Civic Power in Post-Uprising Baltimore” and “The Future of Transit.” And, our partners at Baltimore City’s Census team, Open Society Institute-Baltimore, No Boundaries Coalition, and Baltimore Votes will train attendees to engage with the tools of democracy. The day’s activities will conclude with a rousing call to action by retiring City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke.
