If you call them they will come and that’s exactly what happened when the men of Baltimore answered the call to step up and be held accountable for the recent surge of violence that has plagued the city. Held on July 5th, more than 600 men walked along North Ave, from Hilton Pkwy, to Milton Street and back up to Hilton for a total of 10 miles. According to the event organizers, City Councilman Brandon Scott and community activist Munir Bahar, this was only the beginning and the rally is intended to get those in attendance motivated to get involved with their communities.
