Charlestown – Sandtown Connection

Concerned residents gathered soon after the April 2015 unrest in Baltimore to see what, if anything, we could do. An initial meeting was held with Sandtown leaders and residents to explore ways we residents could listen, learn, and understand more about Sandtown. Subsequent interaction has shown there are needs for volunteers at New Song Learning Center and the urban “hoop” farm, as well as advocacy support. You are invited to be part of this Connection, Subcommittees are Education, Two Communities Coming Together, Advocacy and Housing, and Finance.
