FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Mass shootings like in Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo, New York have left many families broken after their loved ones were taken by these tragedies.

Although these horrific incidents happened many miles away, activists in the FM area are saying no more.

“Enough is enough we are marching for life,” said Rev. Dave Adams, an organizer and campus pastor at Concordia. ”We need to come together and start to figure out ways we can take action.”

Local activists will be taking part in the national March For Our Lives rally in partnership with the Concordia Campus Ministry and Trinity Lutheran Church on June 11.

Marching from Moorhead to downtown Fargo, these activists are hoping to reignite the conversation of creating change.

“I think that we’ve been trying to have these conversations as many of us have for so long and it just doesn’t seem like we have seen any kind of change,” said Adams.

It’s also to send a clear message that lawmakers need to act now.

“We need to hear more than offering thoughts and prayers,” said Adams. ”We would love to hear their plans. We would love to know that they are in fact working towards some reform and that they are actively trying to find ways to prevent this from happening again and again and again.”

The begins at 3 p.m. and a worship service will be held at 4 p.m.

Trinity Lutheran Church is located at 210 7th St. S in Moorhead.

The event is in partnership with TLC-Moorhead, Lutheran Campus Ministry of Concordia, MSUM, and NDSU.

300 other marches are expected to take place across the nation on Saturday.
