Thanks to everyone who applied in the last round. We have selected four groups working to change the face of social and political life in Baltimore as recipients: Baltimore Green Currency Association, Communities United, Baltimore Racial Justice Action, and the United Workers Association.
In our first grant cycle, five projects were selected to receive $2,500 grants: Hit & Stay (a documentary film about the Catonsville 9 and other peace activists); The Sciences from Below (an international followup conference to the wildly successful 2009 City from Below conference, hosted by Red Emma's, The Baltimore Indyreader, and the Baltimore Development Cooperative); Marisela Gomez (for her history of the Middle East Baltimore neighborhood and the fight against EBDI); New Lens (for their Homophobia & Gender Oppression Education Series); and the Ella Baker Organizing Initiative (for a series of learning circles on organizing models applicable to Baltimore community organizers).
