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.
