Maywood Ceasefire works with the communities of Maywood, Bellwood, and Broadview to reduce street violence in all forms. They have weekly group meetings for men and women. Please go to the Maywood Ceasefire site for more information.

Ceasefire started in 2000 in Chicago's West Garfield Park. Between 2000 and 2004, CeaseFire was implemented in 6 of the most violent communities in Chicago. In the first year of implementation in each of these communities, shootings decreased. There are now Ceasefire organizations throughout the Chicago area and nationally.
