Baltimore clergy lead rally for change following riots

Members of various faith groups rallied Monday in front of Baltimore City Hall.

Pastors and community organizers said they want to work on finding a way forward, and building a dialog on police reform, jobs, education and other issues impacting the city.

Hundreds showed up for the "One Baltimore" rally.

The faith community played a big role in addressing the unrest and rioting in Baltimore this week. 

Pastor Jamal Bryant delivered a passionate, emotional speech during the chaos that ensued Monday night:

More than 34 Baltimore clergy signed a letter urging for peace in the city. 

Religious leaders said their role in delivering that message is an important one and what has been missing up to this point has been prayer, according to an earlier report. They said it is important not only to pray for the Freddie Gray family, but also for Baltimore City.
