Indy mothers who have endured the heartbreaking loss of a child via homicide, united on Saturday for the March Against Violence.
A small, but adamant group of people came together in downtown Indy to ask for the communities help to bring peace to the streets of Indianapolis.
Each participant was united by a separate story of loss, RTV6s Ebone Monet reported.
"I am walking for my nephew that was murdered in 2008. He was gunned down in front of a club out in Pendleton Pike. He was shot five times he was 24-years-old at the time," participant Carman Allen said.
Event organizer Anna Davie said her son Terrell Joyce was murdered last month during an apparent argument on West 34th Street. Police said the homicide remains under investigation, and no arrests have been made.
"I love my son. I miss my son. So, please be accountable and come forward. Thank you," Davie said.
Reverend Horatio Luster said he hopes the march will send a message of non-violence throughout the streets of Indianapolis.
"We're hoping that the march will send the statement that it's time to take our communities back," Luster said. "Words just don't describe the pain and the agony that you feel from a family that has lost someone.
