Description

In the spring of 2013, the Maryland legislature passed an unprecedented $1.1 billion financing plan to rebuild and renovate Baltimore schools. This success is among the biggest community organizing wins in the country. Our guest, Rob English of Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development (BUILD), will talk about how the community organized around a single focus to accomplish a huge win for Baltimore schools. He’ll share three key lessons that you can use in your efforts to change policy, both large and small, in your community.

This webinar is part of a series that features each action step in our Take Action Cycle. We will also introduce the Act on What’s Important Guide from the Roadmaps to Health Action Center which provides tools and guidance to support communities working to adopt and implement policies or programs.
