Our Perspective

Imagine a city of neighborhoods. A patchwork of vibrant, resilient neighborhoods that are unmistakably distinct, yet undeniably similar.

Imagine that in one of these neighborhoods, a child born today will live to be 83 years old. Now picture another neighborhood, one just a few streets away, where another child born today will live to be just 63 years old. Picture that neighborhood versus the first one. What causes this difference? What you have just imagined are the effects of inequity. You have just painted a picture of Baltimore. Unfortunately, this inequity costs the lives of 2400 Baltimoreans every year.
