Whether a local community leader or an everyday supporter, Black men are gathering together to take a stand against violence by hosting walks in Baltimore neighborhoods that are suffering from trauma and in desperate need of hope. Their mission is to generate awareness, offer support, and ultimately preserve life.
The men in the groups are church leaders, activists, and residents who are seeking to equip locals with resources for employment, drug treatment, and many other services during their walks. Through these valiant efforts, they hope to make 2020 and years to come better for the community by offering peaceful solutions to situations that could lead to violence.
Black men forming bonds of brotherhood and camaraderie will instill goodwill amongst themselves and others as they strive to become agents of change. Even though almost 100 people have successfully acquired employment through this life-changing campaign, the participants are far from finished.
The primary goal is to rally 1,000 men on the streets of Baltimore during the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. parade, which is scheduled for January 20th. The movement presently consists of 60 men, but they hope for the number of supporters to reach 10, 000.
