A crowd of people took to the streets Monday night to honor victims of drug violence in Mexico.

The National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities, along with people from other groups, marched through Chicago's Little Village neighborhood in a Caravan for Peace.

Once they reached Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, they prayed.

The group, which includes community activists and religious leaders, has been traveling around the country, bringing awareness of the cost of the drug war in Mexico.

Many of those in the caravan say they have lost loved ones to the drug war.
