Concerned community members gathered at Richmond High School Saturday morning where the girl was attacked. Organizers hope events like this are a call to action to prevent horrible crimes like this from happening again in the city.
"Just to make a statement about people being empowered to take action on their own and to come together for a rally just to empower the community and society, and offer them resources, and just love," said organizer Elecia Holland.
"It doesn't take a corporation to make a change," said organizer Kiki Poe. "We can do it ourselves. And, the community comes together. Just put it out there."
Six suspects have been charged in the case with a variety of crimes, including rape. Three of them are under 18 but they are being charged as adults.
