Today, on the one-month anniversary of Trayvon's murder, there will be vigils for Trayvon Martin across the country, including one in Raleigh.
By now, you've probably heard about Trayvon—the 17 year-old African-American student in Florida who was shot by a self-appointed neighborhood vigilante while returning from a local convenience store. Trayvon was carrying nothing but an iced tea and a bag of Skittles.
So many of us have cried over this story. And literally millions of us have spoken out against this travesty through online petitions, photos, messages shared on Facebook, and rallies. Now there will be vigils for Trayvon tomorrow across America.
Hoodies for Hope is at Pullen Park in Raleigh at 7pm. This is a March that will go from the corner of Ashe and Western Blvd and end at the Courthouse - a 2 mile walk. You can contact Jeanette Borne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
