(WEAA)— Community activist Munir Bahar created a viable alternative to the vacant housing crisis in Baltimore. 

 

Bahar is working to transform vacant homes and buildings into community assets. 

 

He is the executive director of COR Health Institute, a community center he built out of abandoned townhomes in east Baltimore. 

 

The building now serves as a community martial arts and fitness facility for families living in the surrounding neighborhood. 

 

Bahar joins Two Way Talk to share his story and his vision for the city.
