Hundreds are using a different weapon to fight violence in Milwaukee this summer.

The group gathered for song, prayers, and speeches at Solomon's Temple Ministry Church near 22nd and Center St.

Shelita Furlow found comfort there. Her cousin was murdered Sunday near 37th and Hampton Ave. He was a 36-year-old father of five.

"It's ridiculous, it’s time for us to start thinking. It’s time for us to start standing up to young people and start instilling love," said Furlow.

The Outpouring Ministry Network Milwaukee is sponsoring events every night this week.

Faith is a powerful theme because it takes a village to save a village.
"Love conquers a multitude of things. People say churches are not out there in the streets. I'm here to say we are," Furlow concluded.
