Hundreds took to the streets on the South Side of Chicago on a Friday in mid-June to call for an end to gun violence both in the city and across the nation at an annual Peace March hosted by St. Sabina’s church. Community members and activists were joined by student survivors of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, along with musicians Chance the Rapper and Jennifer Hudson, and former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
“Something is happening across this country,” the Rev. Michael Pfleger, Pastor of St. Sabina told the crowd at a rally before the march. “Young people are rising up, from the north to the south, to the east, to the west. They are taking action…Either support our young people or get out of the way.”
