LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Faith leaders from across Michigan plan to gather in Lansing on Tuesday to raise awareness about gun violence.

Following the Michigan Prophetic Voices Clergy Breakfast in the morning, the faith leaders will march from the Lansing Center to the Capitol Building for a prayer service.

Members of Michigan Prophetic Voices have started anti-violence efforts in Detroit, Flint, Kalamazoo and other cities.

At the meeting Tuesday, they're to prioritize actions they'll take in 2013.

Last year, Michigan Prophetic Voices urged Gov. Rick Snyder to veto restrictive voter laws and stop the expansion of concealed weapons.
