Our friends at the Greater Springfield Campaign Nonviolence organized a walk and rally through Springfield, MA to demonstrate the importance of the loving thy neighbor. On their walk, CNV Greater Springfield stopped at various places around the city to pray for those whose lives have been touched or ended by violence. The goal was to begin a community conversation and lay the foundation for working together to build a peace-filled city. The action received coverage on their local news station, WWLP, which you can see in the video below.
