An activist is walking to Chicago from Michigan as part of an effort to rally people against gun violence.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports Bobby Holley began Tuesday and expects to take about 10 days to finish the roughly 170 mile route through parts of Michigan, Indiana and Illinois.

Holley says he plans to talk to people about his effort along the way.

Holley is wearing red clothes and carrying an American flag. He's hoping people along the way will provide supplies and places for him to sleep.

Holley drew attention in May while crawling about 25 miles in a red jumpsuit to protest a Michigan school district's plans to stop offering high school education to students.
