(WEAA)—Baltimore Ceasefire is celebrating its 5th birthday.

“In May 2017, a Ceasefire started in Baltimore as a city-wide call asking Baltimore residents to avoid having any murders from Friday, August 4th through Sunday, August 6th, 2017. It was also a city-wide call asking Baltimore residents to celebrate life during the ceasefire by joining with others to plan and participate in what we call life-affirming events.”- BaltimoreCeasefire.com

The city’s most recent Ceasefire took place during Mother’s Day weekend, May 6-8.

Darnyle Wharton, a co-organizer of Baltimore Ceasefire 365 joins Two Way Talk to discuss the work of the movement.
