YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The United Pastors, Clergy and Community Leaders of Greater Youngstown Against the Violence will hold its first prayer walk Sunday.
The walk will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday. It has been moved from the parking lot of the former Bottom Dollar store to New Bethel Baptist Church at 1507 Hillman Street due to inclement weather.
Participants are asked to start assembling at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday. They will then walk from the parking lot to Sherwood Avenue and will offer prayers for peace in the city’s neighborhoods and to stop the gun violence that has seen 61 people shot so far this year, 15 of them fatally.
