About 300 concerned citizens bring Survivors Movement to Broadway

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- With nearly 30 homicides in Louisville in just four months, concerned citizens are taking their message to the streets.

About 300 people came out for the Survivors Movement on Broadway on Sunday.

Many of those marching are either gunshot wound survivors or have been affected by gun violence. 

Mayor Greg Fischer was also at the event. 

He says gun violence is an issue across the country right now and each individual person has to ask, what can I do to help stop it?

"There's way too many guns on the street, way too much illegal activity going on on the street," Fischer said. "And there's way too many people that don't feel like they have a hope or a connection to a future. That leads to violence in the streets. Where we've got to stop it is say there is hope, I'm here to help."

Fischer also stated the site of Saturday night's fatal shooting was the same location as a triple homicide four years ago that started the Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative.
