MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich continues the campaign against violent crime this weekend with a third Unity Walk Against Gun Violence.

It’s Saturday at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of Martin Luther King Jr. Prep Academy, 1530 Dellwood Avenue. Participants should assemble at 9:30 a.m. before setting off on the 1.9-mile walk.

Previous Unity Walks were in November in midtown Memphis and February in Whitehaven, each with more than 500 participants.

Each walk starts with a group pledge:

See something. Say something. Your call counts.

Know where your kids are. Know your neighbors.

Join or start a Neighborhood Watch Group in your neighborhood.

Respect yourself and those around you. Violence is never the solution!
