ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Violence is something every community tries to combat. Saturday morning part of the Albany community marched and made their voices heard to steer youth away from violence.

This is the 9th year Zion Pure Life Ministries has held their Youth Against Violence March.

The group marched from the Civic Center downtown to Radium Spring before ending at the church on Moultrie Road. The march is part of the Youth Explosion, an entire week of activities and inspiring speakers to keep children on the right path.

"We hoped to make the parents and community aware about the violence in our area," said Dr. Aill Mannie Sr., United Purelife Ministries.

"It's important that we show the kids in this community there are places that care about them and there's a place that's open for them, if they need help they can always come through these doors," said Sylvia Strong, Concerned citizen.

The Youth Explosion culminates Sunday at the Moultrie Road church with youth Sunday service.
