BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - A new movement is underway in an effort to take back the city streets from violence.

'Enough is Enough: I'm a Peacemaker,' combines prayer and community groups who are pushing for peace.

The initiative kicked-off Monday night at True Bethel Church, where the group will meed each night this week. Lawns signs have been deployed to announce the grass-roots effort to take back the city streets.

The initiative also includes programs like the toy exchange, which pushes parents to exchange toys that represent violence for non-violent toys.
