A peace rally and march are scheduled Sunday evening in southeast Fort Worth.

A peace rally and march is scheduled Sunday for law enforcement agencies and Black Lives Matter, an organizer said Sunday.

Business owner Manuel Brown said Sunday that the rally will include residents and pastors from throughout North Texas.

“This is for Black Lives Matter and officers,” Brown said Sunday. “We have to stop this violence. We have to stop all the killings.”

The rally scheduled to start at 6 p.m. will begin in the 4200 block of Miller Avenue, just a block north of the Martin Luther King Jr. Freeway (US 287).

Residents and pastors will then march north to Berry Street and then return to the 4200 block of Miller Avenue.

Called the “Unity We Stand Peace Street Rally,” the event comes just three days after five officers from Dallas police and DART were gunned down by a sniper after a peaceful Black Lives Matter march in downtown Dallas.

Dallas police later killed the gunman early Friday in a parking garage near the scene of the ambush.
