Students march against gun violence

Hundreds of charter school students, teachers, and clergy march on Thursday against gun violence on Chicago’s streets.

The march began at 22nd and State, and wrapped up at 36th and Wabash.

“Together we can all do a lot of things to prevent violence in our community. We can start by not encouraging our friends and families to do things that will harm our community. For example, guns and drugs and honestly, all that type of stuff,” said one student.

“We’re walking for peace. Trying to stop the violence. Trying to make a difference,” said another student.
