A church in the Overbrook section of Philadelphia is calling for the end to gun violence.

To help bring attention to their cause they set up a display outside of the Overbrook Presbyterian Church on the 6300 block of City Avenue.

The church partnered with the Heeding God's Call Ministry to create a "memorial to the lost."

The memorial includes a t-shirt for every gun victim who was murdered in Philadelphia during 2017.

265 shirts are on display.
