“Silent March” Hopes to Combat St. Louis Gun Violence

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — A unique march to protest gun violence happens Saturday.

Better Family Life is spearheading a “silent march” starting at the corner of Page and Kingshighway at 11:00 a.m. — participants are asked to be quiet, the only noise — a sole African drum. BFL’s James Clark says violence in St. Louis will never stop, but it can be curbed.

“Our homicide rate should be more like Seattle’s, and less like Chicago’s,” Clark says. “We have a lot of work to do, but I have faith in the city, I have faith in the entire metropolitan area that we’ll be able to address this issue together and make our city safer.”

Those interested in participating should meet at the Roberts building at Page and Kingshighway by 10:00.
