NEW YORK - Speaking from the steps of New York's City Hall, rap music mogul Russell Simmons told a gathering of activists and elected leaders that the start of the nationwide observance of "Peace Week Against Violence" is a call for "all senseless killings and street violence to end because law enforcement can't do it alone."

Simmons, who was involved with teen gangs as a youth, called for more government funding to publicize the crisis and said stronger laws are needed to limit the access to weapons. He said minority communities across the country are holding similar demonstrations this week because they are disproportionately victimized by gun violence.

This is the 2nd annual observance of Peace Week.
