Silent March for 100 Grieving Mothers

(Cleveland, OH) - A Silent March for 100 mothers who are grieving the loss of children or loved ones to violence will take place from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31 in Cleveland’s Glenville neighborhood.

The march is being organized by Cleveland Peacemakers Alliance, a nonprofit dedicated to reducing violence in the city, and Moms Demand Action Cleveland, a grassroots public safety movement.

The march will begin at the Glenville Recreation Center,680 E. 113th St., Cleveland. The organizers picked Halloween as the date for this March to play off the idea wearing a mask – in this case, a COVID mask -- for a costume. It represents the mask of always being OK, even when you’re not. 

One arm of Peacemakers Alliance is dedicated to responding to violent incidents.

CPA’s Critical Incident Response Team is comprised of trained and uniquely skilled outreach workers who respond when critical incidents occur within Cleveland neighborhoods. Critical Incidents include but are not limited to gun violence/shots fired; any acts of violence related to homicide and/or serious assault; being witness to a traumatic event/incident of violence; credible threats of retaliation.
