JUFJ Canvass for Local Control of Baltimore Police

Baltimore
CASA Office
2706 Pulaski Highway, Baltimore, MD

Judaism’s ethic of mutual care calls us to hold police accountable to the people, which is why JUFJ and our partners have been calling to restore local control over the police in Baltimore — the only city in Maryland that doesn’t oversee its own police department — since 2018. Join us as we canvass for Question “H” to put the Baltimore Police Department under the city’s control for the first time since the mid-1800s.
