Warnock Foundation launches 2nd Speak Up, Baltimore survey

  |   Community Engagement, Featured, Warnock Foundation in the News

One of the most important – and informative – projects of the Warnock Foundation in 2013 was the Speak Up, Baltimore Survey, an online poll that asked Baltimoreans to tell us what they think about their city.


In all, 632 people like you told us their hopes, dreams and ideas about Baltimore’s future. We started the Baltimore Social Innovation Journal, a twice yearly publication, to help share some of those ideas with the wider public.


Now, we’re asking you to speak up again.


In the 2nd Speak Up, Baltimore Survey, we’ll see if opinions have changed in the last year. And we’ll get your opinions about some of the specific challenges we face – in education, policing and economic development – and your ideas for addressing them.


Here’s what we hope you’ll do:


  • Click on this link and complete the survey. We want to hear what you think about Baltimore, the problems we face, and how we can make our city even better. Your voice is important to us!
  • Forward this email to as many friends and associates as you want. Invite them to speak up, too.

We’re also excited to introduce a new feature to the Speak Up, Baltimore survey this year: in-person feedback.


We know that online surveys are an imperfect measurement tool, so we’re planning on holding community meetings all over the city in the coming months to hear from Baltimoreans like you, in person.


We hope you’ll take our survey, and we hope you will attend our public meetings. Just like last year, we’ll publish the survey results and continue to use this information and feedback from the community meetings to direct our grantmaking.


We look forward to hearing from you.
