Though founder Erricka Bridgeford and her co-organizers host Baltimore Ceasefire weekends year round, the event this past weekend celebrated the one-year anniversary with marches, water battles, concerts, prayer services and clouds of sage smoke to “cleanse the bad energy” from the streets.
The weekend ended in tragedy with two dead and five injured in shootings. On Monday, members of the Baltimore Ceasefire burned sage at one of the scenes on Broadway.
