Baltimore, MD (February 8, 2020) – The Friends of The Jones Falls Board of Directors voted unanimously to join two likeminded organizations with a stake in the health of the Jones Falls watershed: BALTIMORE • Blue+Green+Just and the Greater Baltimore Wilderness Coalition.
BALTIMORE • Blue+Green+Just is an alliance of environmentally-minded nonprofits and community activists that hold a common vision for health, safety and prosperity for all Baltimoreans in this new epoch of climate emergency. As part of this critical advocacy, they are hosting the Mayoral Candidates Environment and Equity Forum on February 24 at Mount Lebanon Baptist Church at 5:30 pm.
