Russian Delegation Visits Baltimore City

On Thursday, July 20, Maryland Legal Aid welcomed delegates from Russia to the Baltimore City office. The delegates visited Maryland as part of a program titled “Defending the Vulnerable: Supporting Russia’s Human Rights Legal Community.” Maryland Legal Aid shared insights about best practices with regards to human and civil rights cases and procedures in the United States. The delegation was especially interested in Maryland Legal Aid’s work with community partners to rebuild, restore, and revitalize neighborhoods in Baltimore City after the civil unrest in April 2015.
