KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Members of the Nation of Islam are going door-to-door looking for men to join their push to stop the violence in Kansas City.
Organizers call the effort “One Thousand Men Marching on the Community.”
They kicked off the effort at 29th and Askew on Friday.
That neighborhood is filled with vacant homes and blight. The group is looking to change the attitudes and actions of boys and young adults who hang out and get in trouble.
Brother Vincent Muhammad says there are too many senseless murders, robberies and total disrespect of women and children.
He says the key to getting the men of the community back on track is God.
