Baltimore City

There is a little more than a week before the Baltimore Ceasefire, August 4-6. Host Sean Yoes speaks with two Baltimore Ceasefire organizers, Erricka Bridgeford and Ellen Gee, for First Edition's series of conversations about violence and homicide, focused on solutions. 

This week on Keep It Moving, host Marsha Jews learns more about what local and national organizations are doing to focus the Black community on getting tested for HIV. Then, she meets Live Baltimore's new Director  — who isn't so new. And, Jews speaks with the local host committee of the International Diner en Blanc the global secret event coming to Baltimore.
