The Consider the Person Campaign is a project of Community Development Network of Maryland (formerly the Maryland ABCD Network). Its mission is to engage and strengthen Maryland’s community development industry and encourage comprehensive community development through advocacy, partnerships, and capacity building
The campaign is run by an Advisory Board made up of member organizations.
The Opportunity Collaborative provided the funding for the Consider the Person Campaign as a Demonstration Grant designed to pilot initiatives that could benefit the region. The Opportunity Collaborative is the consortium of local governments, state agencies, universities and nonprofit organizations charged with developing a Regional Plan for Sustainable Development (RPSD) for the Baltimore region. The Collaborative also supports the Baltimore Regional Fair Housing Group, county-level agencies that coordinate regional fair housing activities.
The Collaborative’s work will help the Baltimore region coordinate investments in housing, transportation and workforce development to reduce disparities and connect all of our citizens to a prosperous future.
