FARGO — A march seeking "common sense gun reform" is planned to begin at 3 p.m Saturday, June 11.

Trinity Lutheran Church of Moorhead and the Lutheran Campus Ministry of Concordia, Minnesota State University Moorhead and North Dakota State University are sponsoring the event, which will begin at the church at 210 Seventh St. S.

Titled "March for Our Lives: It Is Not Okay," attendees will march from the church to Fargo and back, a distance of about 1.8 miles, and then hold a Service of Lament at 4 p.m.

Those who cannot attend are encouraged to pray, spread the word or write to families of victims of gun violence, according to a press release from march organizers.
