OMAHA (KPTM)- An entire community took to the streets of north Omaha against unsolved murders.  Large crowds marched together with one purpose—to honor their loved ones that were lost to gun violence whose killers have never been found.

"We don't accept this.  This isn't something that's acceptable for you, do not accept this in your community," said Regina Nash.

Nash and her Mother Reeshard Parks lost two men from their family, Devon and Robert Nash, just three months apart from each other. Two years later they said they still have no answers.  So they joined everyone in the march for one thing—justice.

"We can't fall.  We have to stand strong, but we do want justice," said Parks for the death of her two sons.

Many of the people at the march didn't know each other, but they came together as a collective unit to fight for justice.  Many said they only wish the rest of the community would help them solve the numerous murders.

"Omaha needs to break the shackles of silence.  These murderers got you in bondage.  You're bound in fear of what's going to happen to you.  Get them off of the street and you get rid of the fear," said Parks.

The Nash family also wants law enforcement to step up.

"They're not even courteous enough to pick up a phone and say 'I want you to know that we're still working on your son's case.  This is still a priority to for us.'  It's been two years, has a the detective been to my house? No," said Parks.

Though each family know finding the people who murdered their loved one's may never happen—they said they will not give up hope.

"Life has changed drastically for us, but in a lot of ways it made us stronger," said Parks.

Each family is asking anyone with any information to speak up and call Crimestoppers at 402–444–stop.  A cash reward leads to an arrest in each case and your personal information can be anonymous.
