Baltimore Ceasefire 365
Baltimore Ceasefire 365 recently marked its fourth anniversary working to end the violence on the city's streets, and healing the wounds.

Ceasefire co-organizer Letrice Gant talks about last weekend's events, and a movement gaining strength

Four times each year, a grassroots organization called Baltimore Ceasefire 365 holds sacred space rituals and a variety of other events to call attention to the efforts that so many in our community are making to stop the violence that so often plagues some of our neighborhoods. After each Ceasefire Weekend, we invite one of the co-organizers of the movement to Midday to talk about this important work.
