In September 2017, Aspen released the State of Play: Baltimore report. The report is the first comprehensive analysis of how well youth in Baltimore are being served through sports. Now, the goal is to use the report to inspire and help leaders see how they can plug in and develop supportive actions to grow access to quality sports options. Please note that roundtables are invitation only. If you have questions, please email project coordinator Andre Fountain at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hosted at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., the annual Project Play Summit is the premier gathering of national leaders at the intersection of youth, sports, and health. Agenda and speakers TBD, and will include content that shares learnings from the Project Play: Baltimore initiative. Past speakers have included First Lady Michelle Obama, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, ESPN host Michael Wilbon, and tennis and civil rights legend Billie Jean King.
