We are ALL Trayvon Martin

By now you have heard the tragic story about 17 year old Trayvon Martin, who was shot dead while walking home.  If not, see the story here:

Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African-American teenager, was shot and killed in a gated community in Florida late last month by a white neighborhood watch captain, according to police. But the watch captain, George Zimmerman — a 28-year-old who has admitted to police that he shot the young man — still walks free. And Martin’s family is pleading for answers and demanding justice. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/08/family-of-trayvon-martin-_n_1332756.html

 

People all over the globe are outraged, myself included.  If you are in the NYC area, tonight, please support this call for justice.
