Around a 100 people gathered at Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday afternoon to march for peace.
In Louisiana and Minnesota, two black men were shot by police, both were recorded on cell phone video.
“Like I haven’t cried in a while but like I saw that video and it really just touched me,” said Jacob Walter.
Also fresh on the minds of marchers was the recent shooting of five Dallas police officers during what was suppose to be a peaceful march.
“The black lives matter movement has never advocated violence against police and we are standing here today to say not only that we want peace for black people but that we want peace for our cities,” said Michael Kelly.
The march lasted for about an hour and ended at City Market with a prayer and hugs. At one point the hashtag “KC Peace Walk” was trending on Twitter.
