You’re invited to register for Lightning BALT: A collective solutions-building event about how to improve access to quality jobs and uproot sentencing disparities in Baltimore.
On Saturday, October 1, 2016, Baltimore Action Legal Team (BALT) will provide a space for the people of Baltimore to Dream. Think. Agitate. Act. Through a survey of Baltimore residents, community activists and legal workers, access to quality jobs and sentencing disparities emerged as the top two challenges in need of creative, collective and politically-conscious legal solutions. On October 1, we will work collectively to devise a plan of action that responds to and supports the vision of our community. Lightning BALT is presented in collaboration with the Coppin State University Urban Studies Program.
You will also be invited to join us at a reception Friday September 30, 2016 to kick off the event.
At Lightning BALT, we are prioritizing the voices and leadership of people of color, most importantly Black residents of Baltimore, as well as Black legal workers and advocates. We are prioritizing registration from these audiences with the aim of creating a space that is representative of Baltimore’s population and those most affected by injustices rooted in structural racism and economic inequality.Therefore, please note that submission of the registration form does not guarantee registration.
