Thursz Social Justice Lecture May 10

April 8, 2022    |  

The past year has seen a rise in gun violence in cities around the country, including Baltimore. While policy proposals and discussions often focus on top-down responses, Spring 2022 University of Maryland School of Social Work biannual Daniel Thursz Social Justice Event will focus on how organizations in our Baltimore community understand and respond to violence.  We will hear from three community groups, who will highlight some of the important community work they are doing and how social workers might assist in micro, mezzo, and macro community-led efforts to address gun violence. Please join us as we welcome Panelist: 

Jakia Jones, MSW, Co-Organizer of Baltimore Ceasefire 365

Kelly Sparks, Sons of Pheonix

Rev Corey Barnes, Co-Senior Pastor and Founder of GraceCity Church


Caroline Harmon- Darrow, PhD

Kyla Liggett-Kreel, PhD

This workshop is free. However, there is a $15 fee for CEs.
