News & Press Message About the Unrest in Baltimore
April 28, 2015
The Baltimore National Heritage Area proudly joins the chorus of committed citizens, organizations and institutions as we work together to heal and rebuild our city. We are greatly saddened by the deeds of a few. These horrendous actions have devastated multiple neighborhoods within the heritage area.
Despite this, we are committed to doing what we do best -- learning from the past in order to create a better future. We will work with our constituents to provide them resources to heal their historic neighborhoods and reinforce the pride we have in our diverse and culturally rich national heritage area.
Baltimore has overcome a number of challenges in its history, becoming stronger and more resilient with each test. We will join forces to mend Baltimore's image by sharing with the world, our residents, and all of our visitors, the myriad stories of good and triumph of our citizens. We will thrive once more.
We look forward to building a path to Baltimore's future where we all thrive with grace and dignity.
