Baltimore Ceasefire 365 is a volunteer organization formed in 2017 to stop the epidemic of killing in Baltimore, to honor the victims, and to help bring healing to both the survivors and perpetrators of that violence.

Baltimore Ceasefire 365 is a volunteer organization founded 4 years ago to try to end the epidemic of violence in Baltimore, where so far this year, according to the Baltimore Police Department, 289 people have been murdered.

Four weekends each year, the group holds events to encourage those who would do harm to act peacefully, and to help those who are in danger or in mourning. On the Monday following each Ceasefire weekend, we check in with one of Ceasefire 365’s co-organizers.
