MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Community groups in Minneapolis and Duluth are holding events Sunday to call for an end to gun violence.

The events mark the one-year anniversary of the Arizona shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords.

In Minneapolis, several anti-gun violence groups including Project Minnesota are coming together at 3 p.m. at the Church of the Ascension in North Minneapolis. As part of a memorial, those who lost loved ones to gun violence are asked to bring a photo to place on a remembrance tree.

In Duluth, various groups are holding a candlelight vigil and bell ringing starting at 4 p.m. on the corner of Lake Avenue and Superior Street. Organizers will light LED candles in honor of those who die in the U.S. each day from gun violence.
