Join Open Society Institute-Baltimore for the first of three special events marking our 20th anniversary.
The featured speaker will be Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and former director of the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice, where she oversaw the investigation of the Baltimore Police Department and the negotiation of the consent decree with the City of Baltimore. Taylor Branch, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and member of OSI-Baltimore’s Advisory Board, will introduce her.
We will also honor local individuals who have lived the values of Open Society Institute’s tagline, Bold Thinking, Strategic Action, Justice for All, and present performances by poet and 2015 OSI Community Fellow Brion Gill and Baltimore Dance Crews Project, founded by 2015 OSI Community Fellow Brian Gerardo.
We hope you can join us for this special evening!
