Yesterday, there was a great turnout for the #millionhoodie march in NYC’s Union Square. People of all races and ages showed up to support Trayvon Martin’s parents as they pursue justice in their son’s death. Since they were in the city doing interviews earlier in the day, on the Today Show and Al Sharpton’s Politics Nation, his parents came to Union Square to speak and thank everyone for well, just giving a damn - that’s a shot at you Sanford, Florida.more..
Trayvon Martin’s tragic story happened over three weeks ago, but on Friday, March 16, with the release of the 911 tapes to the public, his murder has finally gained national attention. To keep the media’s attention and gain some traction with authorities looking into the case, there is a push to help Trayvon’s parents get 1 million signatures on their Change.org petition.
The marchers will gather in NYC at 6 p.m. in Union Square and then make their way to the United Nations building — it is being held in conjunction with the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.more..
