BALTIMORE (AP) — Advocates for gun safety are holding a march in Baltimore.

Organizers say it will be followed by a rally Saturday afternoon to urge Congress to approve measures to help prevent gun violence, such as background checks on all gun sales.

Activists are holding similar rallies around the country.

Volunteers with the Maryland chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America are planning to attend.

Several elected officials also are scheduled to attend. They include U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, Baltimore City Council President Brendon Scott and Maryland Del. Vanessa Atterbeary.
