OSI-Baltimore Director Danielle Torain On Supporting Grassroots Trailblazers

OSI Baltimore

In recent weeks we’ve profiled the 2020 Class of Open Society Institute-Baltimore Fellows, and you’ve heard about their trailblazing work--like mobile kitchens, urban nature centers, mentoring programs.

Today we speak with OSI-Baltimore director Danielle Torain, at the helm for one year. She says the nonprofit is focused on ways to disrupt patterns of underinvestment in struggling neighborhoods.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
