Baltimore Guardian Angels Build Memorial Wall in Support of

The Baltimore Cease Fire

 

In support of the Baltimore Cease Fire Project, the Baltimore Regional Guardian Angels erected a “Homicide Victims Memorial Wall” in memory of the Homicide Victims of 2017 prior to the Baltimore Cease Fire.

The Wall contained the Names and Information for all 208 Victims and upon completion, stood at a towering 10 feet tall and 18 feet wide. The enormity of the display behind in direct correlation to the enormity of the Homicide Epidemic and Rising Crime Rates  plaguing Baltimore City in recent years.

(Pictured Above: Strider and Ice work to assemble the Panels of which the Memorial Wall are composed.)

 

The Baltimore Cease Fire, which began on Friday August 4th, 2017 at midnight, was a call to action for community leaders, activists, politicians, police, and most importantly, Baltimore City residents, to band together to spread the message of “Nobody Kill Anybody” for the 72 hours between Midnight on August 4th through midnight on August 6th.

Sadly however, at 5:03 p.m. on Saturday August 5th, 41 hours into the Cease Fire, a 24 year old man was killed in Southwest Baltimore, bringing the total for Baltimore City homicides to a staggering 209 deaths. The Video Below, from Baltimore's CBS Affilliate, WJZ 13, tells of the efforts of Not only the Baltimore Guardian Angels, but off communities across Baltimore.

While media outlets have since described the Cease Fire as unsuccessful, The Baltimore Guardian Angels commend those who came out in support of their communities and took a stand to stop the violence. It is only with continued effort from within our Communities that we will be able to move forward and put an end to the Violence in our City.

The Guardian Angels commend the efforts and praise the organizers of the Cease Fire Project for bringing together communities across the city for a Unified Campaign to Raise Awareness and help end an ever increasing homicide rate.

Curtis Sliwa Shows His Soft Side!

Okay, so it’s not what you might think. Guardian Angel Founder, Curtis Sliwa posed alongside Creator of the Guardian Angels Animal Protection Program, Nancy Regula, for the “Show your Soft Side” Campaign.

While you might think that Curtis and Nancy are the stars of the campaign, you may be mistaken! The poster features Curtis, Nancy, and cats of various ages.

The Animal Protection program which was started in New York “solves a couple of problems” explained Nancy Regula during a conversation on the pairs visit to Baltimore for the photo shoot. “It provides shelter for feral cats and helps reduce the rat population in a natural way” continued Regula.

“Using pesticides harms the environment and the rats become immune to the effects of the chemicals over time, which means you have to use more of it” added Curtis Sliwa.

Currently there are over 150 cats in Cat Colonies built on vacant lands in New York. The program also provides vaccination and neutering of the cats through partnerships with other organizations.

Check Out this News Story from New York’s ABC 7 News on The Guardian Angel Animal Protection Program and its level of success.

The hope is to expand the program into the Baltimore Area which, much like New York and other major cities, has had its fair share of problems with rat infestations and feral cats.

The Show Your Soft Side Poster featuring Curtis Sliwa is the second Campaign to feature a Guardian Angel as Baltimore’s very own, Marcus “Strider” Dent previously posed for the organization with his beloved “Maggie May.”

Special Thanks to Leo Lubow for his Photography and the entire team at Show Your Soft Side for allowing the Guardian Angels to show our Soft Side.
