CHICAGO -- Several activist organizations joined the leaders of St. Sabina Church in a peace march on the Magnificent Mile Thursday morning.

Marchers were urged to wear blue, and carry pictures of loved ones who were victims of violence.

The march began at 11 a.m. at the Tribune Tower on North Michigan, then proceeded to the Water Tower and back.

Marchers told WGN there needs to be more investment in impoverished neighborhoods to help curb violence.

Thursday's march is the latest of several demonstrations that have been held on the Mag Mile since the release of the Laquan McDonald police shooting video.
