Rally to Stop Violence in OTR
CINCINNATI, Ohio (Angela Ingram) -- The Cincinnati Stars Marching Band led a group rallying through Over-the-Rhine.
The message is one we often hear, "Stop the shooting. Stop the shooting. Stop the killing. Stop the killing." But it bears repeating.
Outreach workers with the CIRV program say the key to stopping violence is helping people improve their quality of life. "We can connect them with services, assist them with employment. We have the ability to take people from a hopeless state and turn their lives around by our coaching, our mentoring, through our outreach."
There was food and fun and the group prayed for peace. Some say it takes a combination of police, activists, and church leaders make a difference.
The hope is that their voices, their positive sounds will drown out the sounds of gunshots in these streets.
