WHAT: #BmoreYouthRise: A day of UNITY and VOICE for Baltimore’s youth

WHEN: Saturday, May 9, 2015

WHY: All across the nation, with the deaths of countless unarmed citizens including Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Rekia Boyd, Ayana Stanley, Jones, and now Freddie Gray, there is a universal cry for justice. #BmoreYouthRise was formed in the wake of the recent Baltimore unrest as a collective of national partners who are seeking ways to make the event day just beginning of a long-term process for healing and solutions for thousands of city youth.

The FREE public events will be geared towards junior high to college-aged students to allow a supportive and safe platform for voicing their frustrations and receiving solutions, advice, and love from caring and influential adults.
