300 Man March

After a spate of shootings in June, activist Munir Bahar decided it was time to stand up and call out for young men in the city to stop the violence. Gathering neighbors he called for a 300 Man March down the entire 10-mile length of North Avenue. On July 6, after a holiday weekend of violence, he got a 700-man march. "Put down the gun, put up the fist," the marchers shouted. A second, smaller march took place a few weeks later at night in the rough Belair-Edison neighborhood, and Bahar has promised to continue reaching out to communities affected by gun violence.
