NORTH AMITYVILLE - Residents of North Amityville took steps today to spread the word about violence in their community.

About three dozen people took part in a march that aimed to raise awareness about domestic abuse, gun violence and gang activity. The march was organized by the group Men of God, a Christian fraternal organization.

One of the demonstrators who took part in today's march was the aunt of 4-year-old Adonis Reed, who police say was beaten to death by his caregiver's boyfriend earlier this year. Reed's aunt made a tearful plea for local residents to take a stand and help children in need.

Organizers are planning another anti-violence march to be held in Nassau County next month.
