CityExplainer.com is a pilot project by Gus G. Sentementes, a former Baltimore Sun journalist and a digital and social media professional, to bring important public meetings and community events to an engaged online Baltimore audience who otherwise may not be able to attend in person. The project’s goal is to foster greater awareness of critical civic issues and drive engagement through social media. Follow CityExplainer on Facebook and Twitter.

DISCLOSURES: This site generates a small amount of revenue from individual donors who care about making community live streaming available in Baltimore. (Donations are not tax-deductible.)

CityExplainer was also given a $1,000 grant by the Warnock Foundation last summer after Gus G. Sentementes was named one of several 2015 social innovators in Baltimore. This award was given and received by Gus before David Warnock announced his intention to run for mayor in Baltimore in 2016.

Otherwise, this project — which incurs monthly software, hardware, and other costs — is personally funded by Gus Sentementes, and his wife, Karen Sentementes, and their three children who miss their dad at night when he goes out to live stream in the community. So please support CityExplainer by donating at paypal.me/cityexplainer! My official company name is Happy Olive Media LLC.
