It's all part of the eighth annual "I Had a Dream Rally." Participants came from several different churches.
They said they want to send the message that their doors are always open. McKinley Hightower helped organize the rally and said the goal is to get a positive message out to kids and to support anyone who needs help.
"And people usually, when they see us coming down the block they come out and just join the march or they usually be in they cars rooting us on as we march," he said.
Food, music and guest speakers followed the march at Ward Chapel AME Church.
Members of Peoria's Drug Court and Center for Prevention of Abuse also participated.
