Precious Purple Sunday 2021
Violence in the community: Its effects on the family unit and our children’s ability to thrive
Sunday, September 19 at 3PM
Violence can have short- and long-term impacts on a communities' mental and physical health, both visible and invisible. The violence in Baltimore City, and the subsequent trauma it inflicts, is a result of racism, not race.
Racism poisons and devalues Black bodies starting when they’re in the womb. We have to do better. Baltimore’s babies deserve to be born healthy in thriving families and communities.
Please join us in committing to support Baltimore's babies and families.
