What Is ‘Baltimore Standing Together?’

Every day, people are looking for ways to build a stronger Baltimore. Most of us know what the problems are, but few of us know the solutions.

That’s why WJZ, The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore will hold town hall meetings to talk about the issues we’re facing.

“Baltimore Standing Together” will highlight the grassroots efforts of people in our community who are changing life for the better – one person at a time. Our city’s leaders will share their plans and answer your questions, so we want to hear from you.

Be heard, Baltimore.

The first of these town halls, which will address crime in the city, aired on WJZ on Wednesday, Feb. 28. The panelists were Mayor Catherine Pugh and Police Commissioner Designate Darryl De Sousa. You can watch it in its entirety here.

Addiction and overdoses happening on an epic scale impacting thousands of families. Where do we go from here? In the second in a series of Town Hall discussions WJZ, The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore join with healthcare leaders, first responders and community groups to stand together to address the crisis head on and discuss ways we can stop the epidemic. Our panelists for the discussion: Dr. Lena Wen, Sheriff Gahler, Pastor Craig McLaughlin and Edgar Wiggins. It will air on May 8 at 6 p.m.
