ATLANTIC CITY — The Community Walk for a Summer of Peace held Tuesday along the streets of Atlantic City was meant to send a message that there are those who won’t succumb to gun violence that has plagued urban cities like here and around the country.

The June 20th Father’s Day shooting in Atlantic City that left a 23-year-old dead and three others injured left a city that has seen its share of young people die to gun violence shaken. New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, joined Atlantic City Vice President Kaleem Shabazz and other community leaders, walked Atlantic City streets in a show of solidarity for peace.

Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small, Second Ward Councilwoman LaToya Dunston, Pleasantville Mayor Judy Ward and Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner were just some of the few who took time to walk the neighborhood where the Father’s Day shooting took place in a call for peace.

They were joined by faith leaders Rabbi David Weis, of the Congregation of Beth Israel in Northfield; Bishop R. Fulton Hargrove II, president of the Fellowship of Churches of Atlantic City and Vicinity; and Imam Amin Muhammad, of Masjid Muhammad of Atlantic City, and others.

Here are a few of the moving images from the event taken by Atlantic City photographer Nastassia Davis.
