GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate-based anti-violence group has been spreading its message in a northern city with a reputation for violent crimes.

Jack Logan said his group, Put Down the Guns NOW Young People, left Greenville for Chicago, IL, on Thursday.

Logan and Brian Bowie spoke and distributed anti-gun violence literature to children, gang members, church groups, and spoke at several events during their three-day stay in the Windy City.

On Saturday morning, Logan said he and Bowie were also invited to speak with the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Meanwhile, Logan said PDGNYP volunteers in Greenville would continue to monitor the youth presence and remind teens about the curfews in effect downtown.

Logan said this weekend marks the 13th straight that PDGNYP volunteers have hit the streets of downtown Greenville to help enforce the curfew and prevent teen arrests.

Logan and Bowie are due to return to the Upstate on Sunday.
