Chicago Neighborhood Coming Together With Anti-Violence March

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO, IL- Englewood residents are coming together to hold anti-violence marches.

Residents seem to have a love hate relationship with the neighborhood.

"Sometimes it's really violent and you can't really let your kids out when things like that are happening, so. Overall I love Englewood, I'm just looking for some changes to happen," said concerned parent Michelle Cole.

Michelle Cole has 5 children and one granddaughter.

She would love to let them play outside in the summer, but she feels she can't.

"I keep them in. Unless it's my day off where we sit on the front porch, which is where they are, that's about it," Cole said.

She's not alone.

After a violent holiday weekend...residents in other parts of Englewood plan to do the same, this coming weekend.

"Kids gotta be in the house at a certain time. Kids can't even play at the park, I stay in the house," said neighbor Lasaundra Yancy.

Yancy lives near Saint Sabina Church, where father Pfleger holds a march every Friday to stop the violence.

"If we reach out to our communities, get involved in our communities and get engaged in our communities we'll see a difference, we'll see a result but we have to be actively engaged," said Father Pfleger.

Some residents agree...marches and rallies let the community know there are outreach programs to help.

Others say these gatherings don't seem to work....The shootings continue.

"He's gonna have another march today and tomorrow or maybe tonight there might be another shooting," said Yancy.
