PORTLAND, Maine. (WABI) - Local musicians coming together in Congress Square Park to put on an "End Gun Violence Concert."

These live music performances are happening in 100 cities across the country.

The Maine Gun Safety Coalition hosted the event to raise awareness about gun violence.

Organizers hope the community can come together to take action.
