Housing advocates erect tent city at Baltimore City Hall

Depicting unprecedented amount of homeless people on the streets

Housing advocates have set up a tent city at Baltimore City Hall..

It’s an installation by the Black Community Development Coalition to call attention to a growing homelessness challenge in Baltimore – tent encampments springing up across the city. The newly-formed group is calling on the city to assist and house people who are homeless.

“Our homeless individuals, they are constituents in districts,” community advocate Christina Flowers said. “They are citizens in these communities as well.”

The coalition said it has noticed about 11 encampments across the city.
