This event will be a forum for brainstorming how we respond as individuals, a school, and a community, given the outcome of the election at the local, state, and national levels. This event is designed as an interactive panel discussion. We will be joined by the Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, Job Opportunities Task Force and Baltimore Public Justice Center.
Job Opportunity Task Force
Caryn majored in International Studies at Washington College, and has worked within state and local politics for over 10 years. As the first African American female to lead JOTF, Caryn continues to work tirelessly to encourage key policymakers and stakeholders to adopt and support policies and programs that eliminate educational and employment barriers and facilitate the successful entry, or re-entry, of low-wage workers. As such, Caryn has been instrumental in leading numerous state and local policy reform efforts including, but not limited to, ‘Ban the Box’ on job and college applications, expansion of criminal record expungement and shielding laws, postsecondary access and affordability, and reducing the impact of incarceration on working families through development, passage, and implementation of the Maryland Justice Reinvestment Act and statewide bail reform.

Matt has represented hundreds of tenants facing eviction and substandard housing conditions, advocated to create Baltimore City’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund with a dedicated funding source, acted as lead or co-counsel in a number of appeals involving landlord-tenant law, represented multiple classes of tenants in class actions challenging predatory landlord practices, advocated successfully to change Maryland and Baltimore City laws to strengthen tenant protections, and served as co-counsel in a HUD complaint and settlement that requires Baltimore County to dismantle policies that had perpetuated racial segregation and discriminated against persons with disabilities.
