The ACLU of Maryland is building opportunity out of the legacy of segregation. Our fair housing work began with the filing of the landmark civil rights lawsuit, Thompson v. HUD, on behalf of 14,000 Black families in public housing. From that came the Baltimore Housing Mobility Program, which gives families and children the chance to move from neighborhoods that are racially isolated, disinvested in, and have high levels of poverty, to areas of opportunity in city and suburban neighborhoods that have better schools, lower crime, and more job opportunities.
