The Rhode Island Volunteers for Moms Demand Action teamed up with the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence on Saturday for the second of their monthly peace walks. Over 40 people walked through the rain, carrying signs and picking up trash to “express solidarity with impacted communities and be a force for change, from violence to peace.”
The event began with a short statement from Diana Garlington, who lost her daughter to gun violence on November 26, 2011.
Next up, before the walk, was a reading of Dr Martin Luther King‘s “I Have a Dream” speech.
