On October 9 and 10, the Third Annual Run for Re-entry will highlight the challenges of re-entry for individuals being released and their family members, and will raise money to increase access to re-entry mediation for all families.   Community Mediation Maryland's Executive Director, Lorig Charkoudian, will run from the prisons in Hagerstown to the Community Mediation program in Baltimore (a distance of 70 miles), over the course of the two days.  She will be joined by mediators, supporters, and elected officials for portions of the run.

At CMM's 2016 Gala: Community leader, Marvin McKenstry, and Baltimore Police Officer Zach Novak, describe their experience in the police community dialogue in West Baltimore. The dialogue, facilitated by Community Mediation, included residents, police officers, and police leadership. The group had several hard discussions about the history and reality of police community relations. Participants built trust and developed a process in which officers connect youth with community services instead of arresting them. This process is now being developed as a official pilot program in West Baltimore
