Albany group say “We are looking for a change” after violence in city

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - An Albany group says they are fed up with the outbreak of violence in Albany, and they say praying and fasting is the only way to help.

Doctor Amanda Green coordinated a group prayer and fast against violent acts in Albany.

Green said she saw a drastic change in the 90′s when she held a similar prayer and fasting session.

Now she believes she can do it again.

“The whole thing is to accomplish a turn around in our city, because every time we turn the TV on, we have to see murders or somebody getting shot. The solution is just through God. I believe he will give us an answer,” said Green.

The fast started Monday and will end on September 15th.
