    • BRIDGE Maryland Criminal Justice Task Force News: As a leader of a Harford County Coalition that included the NAACP Harford County Chapter, Together We Will Harford County/Upper Chesapeake, Harford County Caucus of African American Leaders, conducted 4 Community Forums with four different Harford County law enforcement agencies covering 10 questions related to policing practices. Their primary target was to stop choke holds and kneeling on the neck. Over 700 people were involved in the online meetings. The last meeting with the Harford County Sheriff had 25 questions from those in attendance. We are working to schedule follow-up meetings.

    Leadership Development

    Training Leaders in Community Organizing

    BRIDGE Maryland provides training for members of faith-based organizations, on the principle that the people experiencing injustice, given the right tools, are most effective in challenging it.  Training includes identifying self-interest, relationship building, power analysis and strategic planning.

    Some training is offered at every meeting of the General Assembly and of the Religious Leaders' Caucus.  More intensive and extensive training is offered through a local 1-2 day training.

    All organizational and individual members are eligible and partially subsidized for the longer trainings offered by our national organizing, Gamaliel Network. Updates on Gamaliel Training can be found on their website: Gamaliel Training 2020

    Due to Covid 19, in person trainings are currently on hold.  

    Bridge Maryland strives to build relationships within communities!
