We’re listening to some of the reporting of our year-long series from a couple years ago, The Lines Between Us, looking deep into the roots of inequality in the Baltimore region.  We wrapped up the series two years ago with a focus o  n what to do about disparities with a public discussion on what tools  local, state, and federal government have to dismantle structural inequality. Joining us was Lisa Garry is director of system reform projects with the Department of Juvenile Services. She has worked for a long time on the issue of racial disparities in contact with the juvenile justice system.  Also joining the discussion was Lisa Williams, director of the Office of Equity and Cultural Proficiency with Baltimore County Public Schools.
