Students Organizing a Multicultural and Open Society (SOMOS) was founded in May 2014 at Baltimore City College. “Somos” is a Spanish term meaning “we are,” which signifies that every member lays down their personal experience to help build our missions. We are a multicultural group that welcomes all ethnicities, races, and sexualities. SOMOS tackles systemic issues of injustice in schools, the Baltimore community, and the nation through activism, solidarity with other partners, and raising awareness of students’ rights.
