Sunday's walk is in city's North End neighorhood

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.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
