Baltimore, MD - Several dozen Baltimore community activists and youth endured sleet, hail, snow and rain to stage a march January 18 from East to West Baltimore and to downtown to draw the connections to ongoing war and racism with food stamp cuts and workers’ rights.
The group rallied at Penn North, the neighborhood of Freddie Gray, and ended at Lexington Market. Organizers reported that the response was deeply encouraging. The group then held a car caravan to a general assembly of the FMLN (Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front) of the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia region.
The march was initiated by the Peoples Power Assembly and endorsed by dozens of groups including Freedom Road Socialist Organization.

Baltimore Center Stage has been awarded a 2020 Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the agency announced last week. For the second year in a row, the arts organization will provide funding to Center Stage in support of its Mobile Unit.
With one of the largest grants awarded to Maryland recipients, Baltimore Center Stage has received $40,000 in support of the theater's Mobile Unit production of the world-premiere play Where We Stand by Donnetta Lavinia Grays
A brand-new fable of penance filled with humor, heart and music, Where We Stand is a play that tackles a community's transformations, its struggles, and its relationship to one individual among them. The production will tour throughout Maryland in March, and then open on the Mainstage at Baltimore Center Stage on April 2. Directed by Tamilla Woodard, Where We Stand is a co-production with New York's WP Theater.
"It's hard to overstate the importance of Donnetta Lavinia Grays' voice within the American Theater. In Where We Stand, she weaves together deeply resonant themes in a format specifically designed for a community tour," said Baltimore Center Stage Artistic Director, Stephanie Ybarra. "Where We Stand furthers our commitment to meet audiences where they are, and we extend sincere gratitude to the National Endowment for the Arts for their support of this vision."
Overall, the National Endowment for the Arts has approved 1,187 grants totaling $27.3 million in the first round of fiscal year 2020 funding to support arts projects in every state in the nation, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
The Art Works funding category supports projects that focus on public engagement with, and access to, various forms of excellent art across the nation; the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence; learning in the arts at all stages of life; and the integration of the arts into the fabric of community life.
"The arts are at the heart of our communities, connecting people through shared experiences and artistic expression," said Arts Endowment chairman Mary Anne Carter. "The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support projects like Where We Stand and the Mobile Unit at Baltimore Center Stage."
Baltimore Center Stage's Mobile Unit serves as an important cog in the theater's programming endeavors and brings theater vitality and engaging, thoughtful scopes of works directly to a vast array of patrons across the state of Maryland. Beginning in March, Baltimore Center Stage will present Where We Stand at venues including senior centers, libraries, prisons and homeless shelters intentionally serving communities where economic, financial, or cultural barriers may prohibit people from attending theater.

Baltimore Ravens tackle Orlando Brown, Jr. and tight end Mark Andrews were named to their first career Pro Bowl, the team announced on Thursday.
|Ric Tapia, Associated Press|
Andrews, 23, in his second season he broke the franchise record for most touchdown receptions by a tight end (7) and led the league with most touchdowns at the position (10).
Andrews expressed gratitude upon hearing the announcement.
"This is an extreme honor, especially since I'm in my second year," Andrews said, via Baltimore Ravens.
A staple of the Ravens' offense, Andrews was quarterback Lamar Jackson’s favorite target.
The 6-5 playmaker was targeted 98-times, catching 64 passes or 65.3% of the throws his direction. He averaged 13.31 yards, accumulating 852.
"I wouldn't be here without my teammates, particularly our other tight ends – Nick Boyle and Hayden Hurst – with everything that we all do on the field. They make my job easier, so this is not an individual award – it's a team award."
Brown, 23, a key member of the future success of the Ravens’ dynamic offense was named a Pro Bowl alternate. A starting point and providing protection for quarterback Lamar Jackson, and helping Baltimore lead the league in rushing and points per game.
Jackson, a favorite to win league MVP, threw 36 touchdowns, including seven to former Oklahoma teammate Marquise Brown. Jackson added another 1,206 yards on the ground behind Brown's 6-8, 345lb presence.
The journey has been tremulous at times for Brown. After his junior season, he opted to forego his senior season after being named an unanimous All-American at Oklahoma. Many considered him a consensus first-round prospect.
However, Brown had what many considered a historically bad work out at the NFL Scouting Combine. Only able to bench press 14 reps, and running a 5.85, 40.
Brown’s draft stock fell. Ravens opted to risk a third-round pick on the son of Baltimore great, Orlando Brown, Orlando Brown, Jr. at 83rd overall.
Week seven of 2018 season, he made his debut as a starter at right tackle -- a position he didn't relinquish. Not missing a snap since earning the role against Tennessee Titans.
At the start of 2019 season, though, Brown missed the opening of training camp due to a failed physical.
Once he joined teammates, the second-year veteran, Brown resumed where he left off. Starting in l 16 games in his Pro Bowl campaign, taking 100% of the snaps – 1107 total.
He allowed defenders to only sack Jackson on three occasions.
Beyond his size, Brown has displayed his field awareness, he accounted for only two penalties this season, offensive holding and illegal formation.
Brown and Andrews will join a record-breaking 11 teammates in the league's annual Pro Bowl on January 26.

All Time Low's official music video for 'Some Kind Of Disaster'
Follow All Time Low on...
Directed by Lewis Cater
Formed in 2003 in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland, All Time Low started out as a high-school cover band before morphing into a melodic emo-pop act. Singer/guitarist Alex Gaskarth and guitarist Jack Barakat were All Time Low's co-founders, with bassist Zack Merrick and drummer Rian Dawson rounding out their energetic pop-punk sound and rowdy live shows, which often included silly string and beach balls. Honing their skills between homework and other teenage commitments, the guys managed to tour across the East Coast and the South during school breaks. They issued a four-song EP, 2004's The Three Words to Remember in Dealing with the End, with help from local label Emerald Moon, and followed its release with a full-length album, The Party Scene, one year later.

| Cache ||Ribuan aktivis dari semua lapisan masyarakat hari Sabtu (18/1) berkumpul di ibu kota Washington DC untuk melangsungkan Women’s March keempat. Pawai kali ini menyerukan perhatian yang lebih besar pada hak-hak perempuan dan isu-isu sosial lainnya.
Pawai yang pertama kali dilangsungkan pasca terpilihnya Donald Trump dalam pemilihan presiden yang lalu, telah bergulir menjadi pawai untuk menyampaikan perubahan sosial yang lebih besar.
Melawan rasa dingin dan ancaman salju akhir pekan lalu, ribuan perempuan berkumpul dan angkat suara menyampaikan isu-isu penting, di sebuah lokasi tak jauh dari Gedung Putih.
Bri dari New York mengatakan, “Seseorang harus melakukan hal ini. Kita tidak bisa hanya mengandalkan orang lain untuk menyelesaikan masalah kita. Jika kita tidak melakukan tindakan dan membuat perubahan, maka hal itu tidak akan terjadi.”
Kesetaraan gender dan hak reproduksi perempuan masih menjadi fokus perhatian banyak peserta pawai ini.
“Banyak isu terkait aborsi, hak perempuan untuk menentukan dan mengambil keputusan. Laki-laki tampaknya masih membuat keputusan atas nasib dari tubuh perempuan dan tidak pernah tahu bagaimana rasanya menjadi perempuan,” imbuhnya.
Hal senada disampaikan Samantha dari Baltimore.
“Saya di sini karena saya perempuan, yang memiliki rahim, dan hak saya apa yang terjadi atas tubuh saya terancam. Saya ingin memiliki kemampuan untuk menentukan hak reproduksi saya sendiri,” paparnya.
Para peserta pawai juga menggunakan pawai itu untuk menyampaikan isu-isu lain, seperti kebijakan imigrasi dan perubahan iklim.
Christine dari Middletown Delaware mengatakan tidak mungkin mencapai kesetaraan perempuan tanpa akses untuk memiliki kesempatan ekonomi yang adil bagi setiap orang.
“Kita tidak dapat mempengaruhi perubahan dengan hanya memiliki banyak milyuner perempuan atau lebih banyak transgender yang berprofesi sebagai pilot pesawat nirawak. Itu bukan keanekaragaman. Keanekaragaman adalah di dalam pemikiran ekonomi dan pemberdayaan orang-orang.”
Sebagaimana tahun-tahun sebelumnya, sejumlah laki-laki juga ikut serta dalam pawai ini untuk menunjukkan dukungan atas gerakan tersebut.
Di antaranya adalah David dari Michigan.
“Saya berada di sini demi anak perempuan saya, demi saya sendiri dan bangsa ini. Tidak ada orang yang memiliki hak, selama tidak semua orang memiliki hak,” tukasnya.
Didorong oleh inisiatif-inisiatif sosial seperti gerakan #MeToo yang difokuskan pada upaya menghentikan kekerasan dan pelecehan terhadap perempuan, Women’s March mendorong seruan perempuan bagi kesetaraan dan keadilan, meskipun banyak peserta yang merasa belum melihat perubahan yang berarti.
“Saya tidak tahu apakah sudah ada perubahan berarti. Sejujurnya saya tidak tahu, tetapi saya akan tetap memperjuangkannya hingga berhasil," tambah David.
Keyakinan seperti ini yang membuat ribuan orang turun ke jalan-jalan di sejumlah kota di seluruh Amerika dan dunia akhir pekan lalu. (em/jm)
