During Baltimore’s first CeaseFire weekend of 2021, participants highlighted the people and places that make Baltimore more than its crime rate. The city has recorded 30 murders in the first five weeks of the year. Supporters of the CeaseFire event hope to bring an end to violence. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, organizers tweaked the traditional format by kicking off Saturday with a virtual “Speak Joy Over Baltimore” event.
