In this year’s highly contested race for mayor of Baltimore City, candidates had yet to address the environment as a top tier issue. A coalition of local organizations, Baltimore Blue+Green+Just (BBGJ), hosted an environmental forum to change that.
More than 450 residents came out to Monday’s forum to ask candidates about their plans to make Baltimore cleaner and greener. 16 candidates took part and shared their visions for protecting our air and water, fostering a green economy, and building climate resilience in equitable ways.
