Reflect & Celebrate With Us!
With the holiday season upon us we can’t help but reflect on the year passed. Perhaps you’re thinking about opportunities and challenges you had in 2017. Perhaps you’re thinking about the chances you have moving forward.
Here at Fusion we’re no different. We have had a year of exciting and impactful work – and we can’t wait to tell you more about it.
At Fusion we believe that change comes from the community. We work hard as fiscal sponsors to support grassroots community organizing. The partners we sponsor work tirelessly to facilitate life-changing programs in Baltimore and across the state. From Baltimore Harm Reduction Coalition – working to build a community focused on harm reduction – to Whitelock Community Farm – growing food and community in Reservoir Hill, our partners are truly changing lives.
We are incredibly proud of the impact we have made in 2017 in Baltimore City and beyond. We want to share our successes with you – our community members. Please come gather with us on Wednesday December 13th at 6:30pm for our Annual Board Meeting and Potluck.
A brief program will include a performance and short presentations by Board, Staff, and Partners. We encourage you to bring food & drink to share – we can’t wait to see you there.

On Wednesday after the election, in a state of fear and tears, Fusion staff sat in a circle for a few moments and held hands. We reaffirmed our commitment to social justice, our support of each other and the Partners we serve. But the most positive thing for us that day was that we could come to work and be together and even more determined to build a beloved community. Fusion is a family of folks who want to see equity and justice in the world.
And now, in only a week after the inauguration, Trump has unleashed racism, sexism and violence in a way that none of us imagined could happen.
Moving forward we commit to continue to support the amazing work and impact of our Partners, seek their input and advice on what works best for them and all of us. Find ways to come together and build power through collaborative action and look deeply and critically into how our work is transforming hearts minds and systems for justice. We invite anyone connected to Fusion to come to us to suggest ways they would like to be engaged in conversations, healing, and connection during these times, We will do our best to hold and create the space for that to happen. Our love is for all of the people of Baltimore, this country and the World. With a united front, we still believe we can change the world.
