Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett addressed a gathering of the city’s faith-based community, community-based leaders and law enforcement Thursday, May 13 during the annual Ceasefire Sabbath breakfast he hosted at St. Martin de Porres Congregation, 128 W. Burleigh. The breakfast, which gives the mayor and faith leaders an opportunity to exchange ideas on how to strengthen their partnership in addressing violence, especially gun violence, was held before the “Cease Fire Sabbath” May 15 and 16 in which the mayor and members of his staff visit churches, synagogues and mosques all over the city and preach non-violence and peaceful co-existence. The Ceasefire Sabbath is the brainchild of Mayor Barrett that enlists leaders in the faith community to preach sermons stressing peace and the rejection of violence to solve problems; as well as extend a hand to those whose lives have been affected by violence.
