MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - Women across the Mid-South came together in Memphis to show support for police officers.
Memphis leaders are asking that everyone take a moment of silence Friday at 11 a.m. as part of the "We Bleed Blue" campaign to support fallen MPD Officer Martoiya Lang.
Dozens of Memphis women wore blue Tuesday in a show of solidarity.
"We're saying Memphis please come together," said Memphis' First Lady Ruby Wharton.
Memphis First Lady Ruby Wharton, along with other prominent women from across the Bluff City, launched "We Bleed Blue" to support the Memphis Police Department.
Those in attendance asked the citizens of Memphis to open their hearts and wallets to honor Officer Martoiya Lang.
"No matter how small or how large, we know that it will definitely help," said Former County Commissioner Deidra Malone.
Officer Lang, who was killed in the line of duty Friday, left behind four young girls.
District Attorney Amy Weirich urged residents to support Lang's family even after the story leaves the headlines.
"My challenge to you is to support these beautiful girls next year," said Weirich.
Others asked the community to take a stand to help officers fight crime and prevent another tragedy.
"We're calling on citizens of Memphis to come together and point out these things when we see them and not live in fear," said Pastor Keith Norman, First Baptist Broad.
If you are interested in helping Martoiya Lang's family, you can do so by making a donation at the "In the line of duty" fundraiser being held at our studios Wednesday.
Volunteers will be taking donations at 1960 Union Avenue from 5 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The fundraiser is being put on with the help of the Memphis Police Department, Clear Channel Radio, and Clear Channel Outdoors.
