ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Uniting and Healing Through Hope of Monroe County held a march and community discussion Saturday to help stop the violence in Rochester.

The organization was on the northwest side of the city at the Tyshaun Cauldwell Recreation Center on Campbell Street after recent violence in the neighborhood.

News10NBC talked with Clay Harris, the founder of Uniting and Healing Through Hope of Monroe County, who says he knows community members have solutions to the violence we keep seeing, and it’s time for them to get involved.

"We’re having a community conversation because everyone sits in their home or church, and they say, ‘Enough with this violence. I wish I could do something.’ They have answers. They have questions. They have solutions. They have ideas that they can bring to the table."

Harris says that if people don’t get involved, the violence will only get worse.
