Charm City, a film that features OSI Community Fellows Clayton Guyton (2000), founder of the Rose Street Community Center, and Alex Long (2017), who works at Safe Streets and founded the McElderry Youth Redemption Boxing Program as part of his Fellowship, will be broadcast nationally on PBS series Independent Lens on April 22.
In 2018, and with support from OSI-Baltimore, the film’s community and engagement team launched the Baltimore Pilot Impact Campaign to assess how the documentary could be used to advance healing and safety in Baltimore. Among the findings from the initial data collection, the campaign found that 96% of those surveyed agreed that resident-driven solutions make communities safer from gun violence.

Meryam Bouadjemi, a 2015 OSI Community Fellow, was a co-producer on the film.
