“For years nothing has been done about it… so this should be the one. It’s all across the nation, it’s nationwide, and I feel like that should make a difference,” Syn D’Vaughn, an attendee, said.

“They just gotta picture if it was they brother or they son or somebody they love,” an attendee named Chris said.
