Looking for where the action is around campus? Short on time and money, but looking for a way to eat, laugh or give back to the community and recharge? Well, look no further! The Community Action Map is a one-stop shop for students to find locally owned businesses, volunteer opportunities and other points of interest in Southwest Baltimore.
All resources on the map are within walking distance to campus or are easily accessible by free transportation from campus (Charm City Circulator or UM Shuttle). The for-profit enterprises on the map aren’t just awesome, they’re locally owned and anchor wealth here in Southwest Baltimore–there are no national chains or out-of-town headquarters.
The Community Action Map is the product of the CAN’s Map Project Team (Summer 2013):
