MILWAUKEE- It’s a simple plea, from the youngest of our community.

"I think violence is not making the world a better place like we want it to be," says Amoria Moton.

Members of Girls in Action Inc., want to see a end to the violence that has become so common in their neighborhoods.

"Violence equals less people less people equal no bright world."

To get their message out the girls wrote, sang and produced this video.

"It’s on Facebook. People have been sharing it and liking it," says founder Erica Lofton.

Their innocent request to play, dream, and grow up show how gun violence is impacting future generations.

"It amazes me how children this young are in tune with the problems going on in their neighborhoods, because I wasn't at that age," says volunteer Alyse Robinson.

This group of girls that started out as a play date has turned into a group wanting social change.
