Baltimore, MD-- Tonight our hearts are heavy and we echo the calls of the Gray family, clergy and Mayor Rawlings-Blake for peace as the city of Baltimore starts the healing process.
We are grateful that Baltimore City public schools will be closed tomorrow, and the district has put the safety of our students and staff first.
Tonight our city mourns, but tomorrow we plan on working with the community to rebuild Baltimore and making sure all children grow up in safe and welcoming communities. The Baltimore Teachers Union will continue to relentlessly work with all community partners to ensure a healthy & safe relationship between law enforcement and the African-American community.
