Bizzell Sponsors CLIA Inspiring Voices Awards
CLIA is a Baltimore-based nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth to become transformative leaders, decision makers, and inspirational voices for social justice. CLIA’s programs use a youth–adult partnership model in which young people and caring adult professionals work in true collaboration and achieve collective impact through learning, advocating, and inspiring change. CLIA leads two programs for young people—CLIA’s Law & Leadership Academies at Baltimore City high schools and the statewide Just Kids Campaign. CLIA’s Law & Leadership Academy introduces Baltimore City students to law and policy while teaching them to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, active citizens, and community leaders. The Just Kids Campaign is a statewide advocacy campaign working to stop the automatic prosecution of youth as adults in Maryland. To learn more about CLIA’s programs, visit www.cliayouth.org.
