LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Three women who have personally felt the impact of gun violence in the city came together to lead a compassion walk in West Louisville.

The walk began at the corner of 32nd and Broadway and dozens who are tired of the senseless violence showed up to support the cause.

This event is connected to the shootings taking place last year where 6 people were shot, three of them killed on May 17 in the Parkland neighborhood.

Sheronda Morris was one of the three people who led the walk Saturday afternoon.

She was hit by a stray bullet in a nightclub in January while trying to diffuse an altercation.

“I’m a voice for the ones who are not here and that makes a big difference – especially when we trying to get out community back for all our loved ones,” Morris said.

A roundtable discussion called Women Speak will also take place in West Louisville at the Yearlings Club on Sunday.
