Toast Baltimore’s Peacemakers at our Annual Celebration, Sept. 27th, 5-9p, 6225 Smith Avenue

The past year has been a big one for the Baltimore Community Mediation Center! We’ve welcomed new staff and new volunteers, expanded our involvement in police accountability by becoming part of the Independent Monitoring team, and conducted listening tours in five neighborhoods heavily affected by violence. Not to mention helping hundreds of members of the community have difficult, but necessary conversations with their neighbors, friends, and loved ones.

Now it’s time to celebrate!

As a friend of BCMC, we’d love it if you’d join us at our Annual Celebration. This year’s theme is #BMorePeaceful! There will be food, an open bar, a silent auction with tons of cool items, and live entertainment! You’ll also get to hear about the amazing work of our *five* community-selected Peacemakers of the Year:

  • Letrice Gant, one of Ceasefire’s core organizers
  • Cody Elizabeth Handy, a Baltimore teacher, literacy activist, and advocate for people with disabilities
  • Ralph Moore, a lifelong peace and education activist
  • Nawal Rajeh, founder of the Baltimore Peace Camp, and
  • Monique Smith-Person, an advocate for missing and abducted children

We’ll also be celebrating the great work of our Volunteer of the Year, Miller Roberts, and our Partner of the Year, Civic Works’ Center for Green Careers!

You, as a member of the community, are a big part of how we’re able to provide no-cost and low-cost mediation, facilitation, training, listening, and community space to Baltimore. Come out and celebrate with us!
