Real Talk Tho: How To Make The Community Safer

Join us on May 21, 2019 at Ida B’s Table for the 5th installment of the newsroom in the community show, Real Talk Tho.

How can we make Baltimore safe for everyone? What are the root causes of violence? How can we change the police department so the community has control?

Those are the topics we'll explore for our next installment of The Real News' newsroom in the community series, Real Talk Tho.

Join us for a conversation that explores real solutions for the ongoing crisis of violence that continues to plague the city. We'll take a deep dive into confronting the often overlooked role of poverty and lack of living wage jobs in precipitating crime. We will also seek your ideas on how to truly reform our troubled police department.

Brandon Scott - City Council President

Neill Franklin - 34 year law enforcement veteran, former head trainer for Baltimore Police Department

Doors open at 6:00PM. The program starts at 7:00PM

Real Talk Tho is made possible in part through the support of the Bertha Foundation.
