Elkhart teens organize anti violence march


A march against violence was held in Elkhart Saturday and it was all organized by local teenagers.  The march kicked off with a prayer then the teens walked down the streets by the Roosevelt Center to protest the recent shootings and killings in the area.

No adults were involved.  The teenagers said they did this all on their own through social media.  "We're trying to help our young teenagers to stop with the violence and the gun violence and to actually come together as one and help our community get better.," said Jyriella Stair.

The teens said they hope to have more marches like this one in the future.
