GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — In response to the number of deadly shootings in Grand Rapids the past month, community leaders invite you to be part of a community-wide dialogue Friday morning.

It will start at 8 a.m. at Messiah Missionary Baptist Church at 513 Henry Avenue SE in Grand Rapids.

Organizers encourage attendees to share ideas on what they feel could help combat some of the violence. Ideas include information about services and programs for kids and teens in Grand Rapids.
