Violence isn’t the only thing happening on the streets of Baltimore.

The nation has seen a barrage of images of the rioting that erupted in the city Monday after the funeral for Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who was gravely injured while in police custody this month and later died. Rioters hurled rocks. They burned patrol cars. They looted.

But there were also peaceful protests. There were residents thanking police. And on Tuesday, with schools closed and streets quiet, volunteers worked to clean up their city.
