See this video of the march in Wilmington below. The march winds through the streets of the neighborhoods. In this clip, a man points out that they are passing a spot where a young man was killed while working on his car. Wilmington suffered 38 gun related deaths in 2013. The next year, they started marching, organizing, and working for a coalition of 40 groups to address gun violence in their communities.
