With the primary election approaching on April 26, this is a critical time in Baltimore. We elect a new Mayor and City Council. Elections count. We need all neighborhoods to count! Members of BUILD – Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development – have organized two events in which residents and non-residents of Baltimore City can participate. Many Brown Memorial members are also members of BUILD.
Join us on two important dates:
- Sat. Feb. 27, 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Voter Registration Neighborhood Canvassing with Memorial Episcopal Church. Meet at Brown Memorial church house. Together we will walk and talk with people in three Baltimore neighborhoods (including Bolton Hill). We will register voters and gain support for the BUILD One Baltimore agenda. There is a role for everyone, children are welcome. Contact Cheryl Finney for information, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sun. March 13, 4-6 p.m. BUILD Mayoral Candidate Accountability Assembly, Coppin State University, doors open at 3:30 p.m., James Weldon Johnson Auditorium. Please enter by Gwynns Falls Pkwy entrance. Hear candidates respond to demands for the four-year term, including on issues of jobs, youth and safety. RSVP required to email@example.com
You DO NOT need to be a city resident to get involved – in the words of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, “We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.” As worshippers in Baltimore City and residents of the Greater Baltimore geographic area, voter registration and turnout is an issue on which we can all be involved.
