Last Wednesday, the West Wednesday coalition held its rally on the corner of Lafayette and Wolfe Streets to lift up the family of Timothy Fleming who was killed by Baltimore City Police on May 16th, 2021. To date, the family had been living in the same house where they saw him executed in the midst of his mental health crisis and live daily with the trauma of the tragedy. The coalition, with the help of Timothy Fleming’s sister Angela Sutton created a GoFundme account to raise money to move out of the house. To date, the funds have been raised with more to come to ensure the family has enough funding to cover moving and living expenses while healing from the trauma of sanctioned violence.

Baltimore Ceasefire weekend 11/5-11/7 recap:
“This weekend this city lost five community members, including a 60 year old man in my neighborhood. If anyone has been following the multiple platforms Baltimore Cease Fire has, the messages have gone out with the call to share and attempts were made to reach the families to give them monetary support and love-it’s the other component of BCF in response if the spirit of murder shows up. That spirit showed up five times, and from my experience, it’s the most individuals killed on a weekend designed for the self-determination work to affirm life, with also at least three additional individuals surviving the shooting. This is a very heavy load to process and I suspect I’m not the only one doing the processing. I also can’t deny the myriad of feelings behind the loss of lives when there was great intention to affirm us as a collective.
While the spirit of murder was showing up, the spirits of life, care, compassion, community and self-determination too showed up this weekend. Peace and wellness walks to engage with the community took place. To see people moving the way they were, making more connections, and having  dialogues about what we can do to be healthy as a community incentivize me more to keep going and keep focus. I even reconnected with a member of Temple of New African Thought  who was also on one of the community walk and received mental health resource information from him. 
There is what we see and hear and there’s the stealth work of many individuals not seen that holds down the peace & safety in these streets. Never give up because honestly, it’s not a viable option to do so.“



November 5th-7th, the Baltimore Ceasefire/ Peace Challenge Weekend ALL DAY. Special thanks for our division Ambassador At Large, Sister Charlene for always dedicating her time and energy to our community. If you can, please try to check out these events.


Beginning November 1st, 10- 5am patrons of the Walbrook Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library are invited to remember those they have lost to gun violence and express their hopes for a future free from additional loss through the decoration of a CD which will be hung in our street facing windows.

CDs can contain the names of those who have fallen victim to gun violence or contain words and images express their grief and hopes. The activity will end on November 6th; however, the display will remain in place for two weeks after.

All supplies provided by the library while supplies last. We plan to show various videos in our meeting room throughout the week regarding gun violence and the steps people have taken to move forward into a future safe from gun violence. We have requested to show Sage.

This event is hosted by Jodi Apps at Pratt Library. Contact them about this event at [email protected] Details

Peace Run/Walk in Patterson Park

Join Runners4Justice for a Peace Challenge Run/Walk in Patterson Park during the November Ceasefire weekend!

We’ll gather at 9am at the Patterson Park Observatory (near Patterson Park Ave. & E. Lombard St. 21224). Together, we will raise up the names of those who have lost their lives since the last Ceasefire weekend. Then, we will enjoy nature and the park together, walking, running, or biking. One group will run to some of the places near the park where people have lost their lives (~3 mile light jog). Others will walk the park with chalk to put positive messages around the park. This is a family friendly event – kids, strollers, dogs all welcome!

We’ll have sidewalk chalk to write messages of peace, joy, and healing along the trail as we go! Feel free to bring sage, chalk, bubbles with you, as well.


This is a walk amongst neighbors to show solidarity and to encourage healing while not only our community but communities across Baltimore City who are experiencing change.

This event is hosted by Dani. Contact her about this event at [email protected].
