One year ago, the city of Baltimore came under intense scrutiny as the latest city in America to grapple with police and community tensions. In the aftermath of Freddie Gray’s death while in police custody, Marylanders across the state have been asking: “What now?”
The Maryland Coalition Opposed to Violence & Extremism (COVE) invites you to join us for an engaging day of panel presentations and discussion to try to address that question.
Guest speakers include:
Chief Gary Gardner – Chief of Police, Howard County Police Department
Erricka Bridgeford – Motivational Speaker & Community Activist, Training Director for Community Mediation Maryland, Coordinator for Baltimore Girls: Illuminating Souls and Co-leader of Village Keepers, an organization whose goal is to reduce emotional and physical violence in Baltimore.
Faraji Muhammed – Youth Empowerment Coordinator for the American Friends Service Committee, Director of Peace for Peace By Piece Baltimore, and Host of Listen Up! on WEAA 88.9 FM & Co-Host of The Larry Young Morning Show (PRAISE 106.1 FM).
Chief William McMahon – Acting Executive Director of the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commission.
Harpreet Singh Mokha – Mid-Atlantic Region Director for the Community Relations Service (CRS), U.S. Department of Justice
And many more!
