Activists to lead walk against violence in Springfield

People will take to the streets in Springfield, Massachusetts this Sunday in a demonstration against violence.
The Greater Springfield Campaign Nonviolence is hosting a walk and rally.
These biannual events are part remembrances for victims of violence and part calls for neighborhood action.
The walk on Sunday begins at 2:30 pm in the parking lot at Blessed Sacrament Church at 40 Waverly Street and will end there with a rally at about 3:15 pm.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Rev. Lauren Holm, pastor at Bethesda Lutheran Church in Springfield and convenor of the Campaign Nonviolence.
