The Ceasefire Weekend, Feb 4-6: Some reflections from Letrice Gant

Baltimore Ceasefire 365
Baltimore Ceasefire 365 was organized in 2017 to urge Baltimore residents to help bring an end to violence, and to heal those victimized by, or committing, that violence. (image courtesy Baltimore Ceasefire 365)

Since 2017, four times each year, a wonderful organization - Baltimore Ceasefire 365 - organizes events over the course of a weekend that send out a call to end violence, and for everyone in Baltimore to commit to be a part of creating the change we want to see in our city. Ceasefire Weekends bring people together to acknowledge the pain and heartbreak that the homicides in our city cause for the families and friends of the victims of violence, and to raise up the voices of those who are working for peace.
