On Friday, May 5, WYPR will host a Live Listen of a one hour special documentary, “Running from Cops: From the Streets to the Courts,” a collaboration between WYPR and the nationally syndicated radio program REVEAL at the Charles Theater at 1pm.
The new documentary grew out of WYPR reporter Mary Rose Madden’s yearlong series, “On the Watch: Fixing the Fractured Relationship Between Baltimore’s Police and Its Communities,” which examined the root causes of harmful policies and practices of the Baltimore Police Department. OSI-Baltimore funded “On the Watch” from the Baltimore Justice Fund, which OSI launched after the death of Freddie Gray to support focused interventions to improve police accountability and police-community relationships.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. Register here.
