Council members from both Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties are partnering with CASA de Maryland, in a bi-county, multi-jurisdictional tour of Long Branch and Langley Park, Maryland.
These two jurisdictions are the heart of Maryland’s “International Corridor,” home to one of the most diverse areas in the state.
Our community does not stop at county lines. Our residents live, work, and raise their families without regard to which county jurisdiction they are in. That is why it is so important for us to work collaboratively and across counties and cities to address the complex issues that face this area: health care, transportation, community safety, services for the vulnerable, and economic opportunity,” said Gustavo Torres, CASA’s Executive Director.
“While our community has deep needs, it is rich in multicultural resources,” said Councilmember Will Campos, Prince George’s County Council, District 2. “Through creative thinking and unusual partnerships, our diversity will strengthen the social and economic strengths of a vital cross-border community,” said Councilmember Campos.
The event will be Friday, June 13, 2008, 12:00pm to 1:30 pm and will begin at CASA Pine Ridge Community Center, located at -8615 Piney Branch Road, Silver Spring, MD 20901.
