    Calls for change at Dorchester antiviolence rally

    Shake the City rally implores residents to help foster peace

    About 200 people rallied on Sunday at Franklin Field in Dorchester to support the relatives of five people who were killed last week in Boston, including three women who were gunned down in a car, and to urge residents to work together to make their neighborhoods safer.

    Some at the rally, dubbed Shake the City by the organizers, called on residents in areas that are often afflicted by violence to inform community leaders of possible criminal activity before it happens, in an effort to prevent bloodshed.
