BUILD – Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development – is a broad-based community power organization, rooted in Baltimore’s neighborhoods and churches. We are non-partisan, interfaith, multiracial, and dedicated to making our city a better place for all Baltimoreans to live and thrive. You’ll find us working for change on front stoops and in living rooms, in churches and classrooms, in City Hall and at the State House in Annapolis.
For more than 30 years, BUILD has worked to improve housing, increase job opportunities, and rebuild schools, among other issues. We are a non-profit supported by the dues of our member organizations and by individuals, businesses, and foundations. We are affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation, a coalition of like-minded organizations in cities across the United States.
Our victories range from initiating the national living wage movement to creating Child First, an after-school program that encourages parent-teacher-neighborhood partnerships, to building and rebuilding more than 1,000 houses in Baltimore’s most distressed areas.
