WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Organizers of the annual Wichita Walk Against Gang Violence hope this year's march will draw twice as many participants as there are gang members in the city.

This year's walk begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at McAdams Park. The route is different from the first two years because Vice Mayor Lavonta Williams says gang violence doesn't have a district.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/HOI9Dt ) reports there are about 3,000 documented gang members in the city, and organizers hope 6,000 walkers show up for the event. More than 50 groups will be offering information about summer youth activities and resources for addressing gang involvement.

Williams says she would like to see the walk held in a different part of Wichita each year to illustrate the point that gang violence happens everywhere.
