Event organizer Rayetta Lee said she hopes the event empowers people to come together and heal.

“It takes a whole village to raise a child and that’s what we want; to be the village, to raise these children because they are lost,” Lee said.

Lee’s niece, Dee Walker, was killed in a shootout.

People walked down the street carrying signs with the names of other people they knew who had been killed in gun violence.
