Charm City (Documentary Film)

Strong City Baltimore (EIN # 52-0897806) provides essential administrative and financial support to projects all over the city through fiscal sponsorship, including  Charm City. Fiscal sponsorship provides the ability for those projects to receive tax-deductible donations through our 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.

About the film:  

CHARM CITY will take viewers beyond the nightly news coverage to explore what has become so chronically broken between police and communities. Over the course of a year of observational filming, we will meet community members, local elected officials and law enforcement personnel in some of the toughest areas in Baltimore. At times, their circumstances will highlight the current crisis of violence and distrust between citizens and police officers, and at times their actions may help point a way forward.
