Pigeon Town—Strike Against Crime Week honors two-people who's lives were cut short by gun violence.
55 year old Eula Mae Butler Ivy was shot and killed after her grandson testified in court.
20 year old Ralph Bias died in a drive by shooting.
These two crimes "went down" close to the same Pigeon Town streets neighbors and family are marching.
Their anti violence message is directed far and wide.
“We lost a lot of people back here, man. Young people,” says Joseph Henry. “And we just tired of it so we just trying to put our foot forward to make a change.”
The number of people who showed up is good but in order to make a larger impact Henry says there needs to be a bigger voice, “We just wish more people would get aboard of what's going on so we can try and come together as one.”
Strike Against Crime Week continues in front of city hall Friday at noon with the annual victims memorial.
It concludes Saturday with a peace walk at Lyons playground.
