A Walk In Prayer To End Violence
On Sunday, July 10, 2016, members of the Houston community, including Mayor Sylvester Turner and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee participated in a walk to end violence. Hundreds began this walk outside of the historic Antioch Baptist Church and ended on the steps of Houston City Hall. This walk was held due to the number of violent outbursts that have sparked outrage in many across the nation. Many community leaders and legislators have pushed for reform in our laws to prevent gun violence and for police to have body cameras.
