ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Hundreds met in Albany to start the process of combating violence in the good life city.
The group packed the ACAD building at Albany State and heard from inmates who made the wrong decision.
The stop the violence summit aims to bridge the gap between young people, their parents and the community to stop violent acts.
City leaders and spiritual leaders also talked to the crowd.
For one of the pastors it was personal, Bishop Frederick William's sister was murdered last month.
"December 8th I experienced a violent crime in my family, our city has become such a violent place, and what we did was came together with people from all walks of life and say lets solve this problem," said Bishop Frederick Williams, Gethsemane Worship Center.
"We're speaking to two or three different categories, kids, fathers and those who may not be fathers like young college students who could help by mentoring 3, 4, and 5-year-old boys and girls," said Bishop Victor Powell, Rhema Word International Ministries.
The summit also stressed the importance of having a father figure in the lives of young people.
Another rally to discuss how to stop the violence is planned for January 19th.
