Tonight is National Night Out against crime in Baltimore. This event is nationwide. When I was growing up in the community and being active in the community I thought it was only about my block. However, National Night Out is an event that is being hosted in the Baltimore region as well as the counties here in MD against crime in the community. These gatherings are designed to be a “deterrent” against criminal activity in the community. The objective is to fight crime. It also shows solidarity for the live lost because of violence. Activities will begin at 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. throughout Baltimore at some locations such as Calvert Street Park at 23rd and Calvert Streets and in Mid-Govans at the Dewees Recreation Center, 5100 Ivanhoe Road, From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Check to see if your community will be hosting gatherings for National Night Out in your community or surrounding area.
