Baltimore City Council to host Baltimore Youth March
Baltimore, MD – City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young will greet hundreds of youth as they embark on a mile long journey in support of the historic Children and Youth Fund.
The Baltimore Youth March is a grassroots, youth-led march, which will begin at The Kids Safe Zone in Sandtown-Winchester and will end at Frederick Douglass High School.
The march will highlight Baltimore’s historic youth fund that will be the only government fund in the country to be controlled by the community and led by youth, with a focus on racial equity.
"We’re creating a system that will have true citizen engagement baked in from the ground up – just as it should be," Council President Young said.
The march will culminate with the City Council Education and Youth Committee holding a public hearing on Council President Young’s Youth Fund legislation. The hearing will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Auditorium at Frederick Douglass High School. Members of the public are encouraged to attend and offer public testimony.
