Across the Twin Cities, many residents have begun raising their voices and concerns about recent escalating violence in the communities. One such gathering took place on Friday, July 10 at Guns Down, Love Up, part of a campaign started by the family of late activist Tyrone Williams, who was slain in 2018.
Guns Down, Love Up hosted simultaneous rallies in North Minneapolis and St. Paul to foster community spirit and spread the message against gun violence. Many first responders also attended, including Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo.
