Battleground Baltimore: Freedom?

In this week’s roundup of Baltimore news: A controversial security deposit bill, Amazon donates what Bezos makes in four seconds to a local community garden, and a Prince George’s County mayor calls out the governor.

One reason why The Real News Network calls Baltimore home is because we know that the struggles that the people in this majority-minority city face (unequitable access to resources like education, clean air, and transportation, for example) are the struggles people face all over the globe. By reporting from the Baltimore trenches, we hope to keep our friends and neighbors abreast of what’s going on in our city, but also hope these stories will resonate with people united in the struggle everywhere.

As a nonprofit newsroom, we depend on your support. If you’d like to see more reporting on and from Baltimore, please consider making a tax-deductible donation or becoming a monthly sustainer.
