DR MARVIN​​,
 
Spring has begun and it's time to get together for an outside socially distanced outreach day! Let’s don our best post Easter-Passover masks, with hand sanitizer and maybe a garden tool or two as we engage with the folks of Harlem Park in inner West Baltimore discussing their needs in the face of calls for massive demolition, COVID inequities and eviction, and the exciting possibilities of Hope Garden and its youth and environmental programs.
As you know, the MD PPC depends on local people who come to know one another despite all that can separate us, and are committed to lifting the voices and needs of those most impacted by the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and religious nationalism.
In Baltimore, we come from grassroots organizing groups, faith communities, unions, and tenants’ rights and anti-poverty groups and draw energy and inspiration from one another. We need your heart, souls, hands and feet too!
Here are some details:
We will gather at 4 pm in Hope Garden at 1314 Harlem Avenue.
After introductions, we will get a brief training on the questions and the asks we will take, in teams, to neighbors.
We will return together by 6 (6:30)  to debrief and celebrate in the park—where there will also be music, gardening tasks and craft projects.   Rumor has it that there will also be pizza (more sanitizer) and a great vegan red lentil soup for us to enjoy when we return.
 
Forward Together, Not One Step Back!!!
