The Open Society Institute-Baltimore each year launches the work of ten fellows who have plans to combat inequity and injustice. This year two of the ten are working to elevate Baltimore’s spanish-speaking community. Dinorah Olmos helps parents navigate the ins and outs of the American school system with her program La Escuela, Los Hijos y Usted. Then, Kendra Summers talks about connecting Spanish-speaking immigrant families with information about buying a home and tenant rights, while also teaching them English. Her program is called Casa Amable.
