Truth-tellers must be protected and defended, particularly those on the front lines of democracy.
Baltimore Action Legal Team (BALT) is a local organization that serves to protect free speech and our right to protest, especially with regard to marginalized voices and oppressed communities in our Baltimore.
“BALT is dedicated to politically-conscious lawyering and to using creative, collective solutions to support the Movement for Black Lives in Baltimore. BALT seeks to build the capacity of the local Movement for Black Lives by providing four key services to address the justice system: 1) legal observation teams during community protests, 2) jail support services, 3) the bail fund, and 4) Human and Civil rights training.”
