A Facebook Live Series

In fall of 2019, over eighty organizations and thousands of individuals across Baltimore came together to pass the Elijah Cummings Healing City Act and build a movement for change. Now we are taking the movement live in a weekly Facebook Live series.

 

Truth & Healing is an ongoing citywide conversation about how Baltimore can heal from its enduring trauma. We hope to elevate conversations around mental health, racisim, youth activism, anti-violence work, and more. We will center the voices of Baltimoreans from all walks of life who are working to heal our city.

 

Tune in weekly at 7pm to the Healing City Facebook page to watch live, and view past episodes any time below after they air.
