The Baltimore Sun reports that members of Memorial Episcopal Church in Bolton Hill voted Sunday to set aside $100,000 to donate in the next year to community organizations doing what it termed “justice-centered work.” The fund is intended to address race-based inequalities that have proliferated for generations in the church and in the community at large. A church advisory group will choose beneficiaries that focus their work on issues of housing, education, environmental justice or civic engagement.last_img read more
