Racial Equity Community Development Forum

Blacks and People of Color survived Baltimore's 1930's racial segregated housing and zoning practices, the 1960 discriminatory blockbusting tactics, the 1968 neighborhood riots, and 2006 predatory subprime lending practices.

People of Color Lives, Neighborhoods, Social, Cultural and Economic fabrics are still being destroyed by unfair economic investment policies and practices.

Since Baltimore's 2015 Freddie Gray Uprising?
The average White Household makes 2X the income of the average Black Household
1/3 households of color have 0 net worth
9 out 10 inmates in Baltimore City are Black
Unemployment Rate Workers of Color 3X the rate for White Workers - 

Blacks 14% Latino 7% Whites 4%
Homeownership Rate - Blacks 42% Whites 60%

In 2019, nonprofits, foundations, local government and private sector need to work cohesively together to aggressively dismantle " White Privilege Community Development Practices" being orchestrated in Black and Communities of Color.

Baltimore Needs:
Neighborhood redevelopment with trust across racial, social, economic and cultural barriers.
Equitable community development strengthened by collective ideas and involvement.

April 4th, marks 51 years since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis.
