Organizers launch anti-violence campaign

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -
It has been a violent month of May in metro Atlanta.

Gun violence has taken the life of a 9-month old baby, sent five students to the hospital after a shooting near Therell High School and wounded two teens who were allegedly committing an armed burglary.

Saturday afternoon community leaders joined parents and students to launch an anti-violence campaign.

Organizers said there needs to be an all-encompassing approach to stopping the violence.
They said any change has to start at home, and then spill over into schools and churches.
