The march was organized by the 41st Precinct in response to a string of recent assaults and shootings in Hunts Point, Longwood and surrounding communities.

Those rallying hope their march for a peaceful community will leave a lasting impression, block by block. They also hope that, by marching in unison with 41st Precinct officers, others will be encouraged to become more involved in helping their local precinct.
