A group of mothers in Minnesota joined a national effort to speak out against gun violence and remember the victims of last year's school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
On Saturday, a group called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America organized 50 events in more than 35 states to honor victims of gun violence. All the events will included a communal bell-ringing.
The Minneapolis event also included speeches about the need to reduce gun violence.
The event was at 9:30 a.m. at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis.
