Dozens of community members marching with law enforcement to unite both sides after terrible tragedies across our nation.

Members from the Daughter of Zion Church in Delray Beach joined Delray Beach Police and the Florida Highway patrol to spread a message of all lives matter.

"We're going to stand unified."

Lindreth Miller says it's a good sight to see, law enforcement side-by-side with the community.

"I love it and that's how we want it to be."

Organizers say todays rally is all about being proactive instead of reactive.

"Fostering an environment for change between community and between law enforcement where we don't let all this stuff build up and that we're proactive at resolving it," says Michael Hannah.

Following the march, Delray Beach Police Chief Jeff Goldman held a Q & A with the community on what to do should someone be pulled over.

"Anything to make them more relaxed around us is a benefit to the whole police community relations," says Chief Goldman.

Organizers are already planning similar events in the near future when it comes to building community and police relations.
