Red Desk Project seeks to protect youths from violence
In a call to action to do more to protect Baltimore children from violence, 100 red desks lined the campus of Sinai Hospital in northwest Baltimore. This year alone, 10 children have lost their lives to violence, and the impact of their deaths extends to family members and their communities. LifeBridge Health launched the Red Desk Project in 2021 in collaboration with the Center for Hope and Baltimore City Public Schools. Each desk represents a child killed in Baltimore. They hope the display not only outrages the community, but draws attention to the need to protect children from becoming victims.
