One Million Hoodies March for Trayvon Martin

There will be a march for Trayvon Martin this Thursday (March 29) at 6pm.
Here are the details of the event:

Throw on your hoodies (or whatever) and come gather to show your support for justice for Trayvon Martin!

Let's make a choice to stand up for Trayvon Martin. 17 years old. black. innocent. murdered with a bag of skittles and a bottle of ice tea in his hands. "Suspicious." is what Zimmerman said as to why he killed him (not yet arrested) because he had on a black hoodie.

A black person in a hoodie isn't automatically "suspicious". Let's put an end to racial profiling!

We're going to be gathering at Northrop Plaza (84 Church Street SE) at 6 PM. Bring a sign or anything if possible.Times: potential speakers (leaders of organizations only) 5:30pm. Everyone else: 6pm. Program: 6:30pm march in plaza: 7:30pm. Done: 8:00pm.

"We must, individually and collectively, stamp out racism, stigma and prejudice."
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
Message for the International Day for the
Elimination of Racial Discrimination 2012
