ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - On Saturday dozens of people showed up to Barrett Brothers Park to march together and talk about how they plan to move forward and heal in a community plagued with violence. H.U.G.S or helping unite grieving sisters sponsored the event.
Family and friends of murder victims planted 30 sapling trees to honor the lives lost in the City of St. Louis. 22nd ward Alderman Jeffrey Boyd and the Hamilton Heights Neighborhood Organization also helped make the event and peaceful demonstration a reality.
Neighbors also handed out leaflets and spread the word through social media. The group is hoping that someday violence in the City of St. Louis will come to an end.
