At the last of three special events marking the 20th anniversary of the Open Society Institute–Baltimore, Open Society Foundations President Patrick Gaspard discussed the challenges to open societies around the world.

Throughout the series, Open Society Institute–Baltimore has honored local individuals who have lived the values of its tagline, “Bold Thinking, Strategic Action, Justice for All.” At this final event, it presented awards to Kurt Schmoke, former mayor of Baltimore and current president of the University of Baltimore, and to Lois Feinblatt, therapist, activist, and philanthropist. Lastly, it introduced the new 2018 Open Society Institute–Baltimore Community Fellows.
