BALTIMORE — There was a call for equality, as dozens of people met up and marched along York Road near Coldspring Lane in North Baltimore to highlight disparities in the neighborhoods.

Protesters included Johns Hopkins University students and residents of Baltimore.

An organizer said there is a large difference in life expectancy depending on what neighborhood you live on.

They hope the march starts a conversation.

"We understand that there's a lot of people on the other side of York Road who don't understand, that's why we're having this dialogue. We want them to come, meet with, come so that we can explain to you how we've been suffering. There's a lot of people over there who want to be allies and don't know where to start. This is where you start," said Tee Hardey of Village Mentality, LLC.

They passed out flyers and asked for investment in their community to fix the disparities between the neighborhoods.
