Hours after the murder in Americus, some community members gathered to work on ways to stop crime.

SAVE stands for standing against violent environments.Members meet once a month to work on improving the community.

They're planning an anti-crime rally next month with law enforcement, community leaders and educators. They hope many people will join in and stand together against violence.

"Be more proactive with the people that are doing things year-round to bring awareness and stop the things that are going on in our community," said SAVE founder Laura Edwards.

The rally will be June 25th at Staley Middle School. For more information on SAVE, here is a link to their Facebook page.
