Gun violence spurs Dallas rally

DALLAS —Three weeks after the death of Michael Brown, hundreds of people marched through the streets of Ferguson, Missouri on Saturday. Brown is the black teen who was shot and killed by a white police officer.

HIs death led to days of violence and widespread protests, and it is still sparking demonstrations across the country against police shootings.

Mothers who lost children to gun violence rallied in Dallas on Saturday morning. Some wore pictures of their children on T-shirts. They said their goal is to bring awareness about the true toll of gun violence.

"Since my son died, there's been many more deaths, and I'm tired," said Deborah Forge. "I don't want to see any more black children dead."

Members of the Black Panther Party were among those taking part in Saturday's peaceful rally.
