URBANA -- After losing their daughter to gun violence in Chicago, these parents are asking people across Illinois to get involved. The father of Hadiya Pendleton was in town Wednesday discussing the violence in Chicago.

He was part of a panel discussion called City on the Brink. Earlier this year, the 15-year old was shot and killed at a Chicago park.

Hadiya's father says his focus is on getting others to take a stand. Other panelists included a Chicago Police officer and a Chicago alderman.
