The anniversary of the killing of Trayvon Martin has led to a number of commemorative events in various cities around the country.
The 17-year-old high school student was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Florida, on Feb. 26, 2012, sparking a national controversy. In the aftermath of the teenagers death, there were a number of rallies in support of his family and denouncing racial profiling and gun violence.
A candlelight vigil will be held on Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. in New York Citys Union Square Park, with a moment of silence to begin shortly after 7 p.m. It was the same place where one of the first rallies in support of the Martin family was held in March 2012.
Another event is planned for Tuesday evening in Atlanta, where organizers are conducting a rally on the steps of the Georgia State capitol. The 5 p.m. gathering, which is billed as a Remember and Act rally, is being organized by a wide number of groups, including the student government organizations of Morehouse, Spelman and Clark Atlanta University. Other groups include the Georgia Federation of Teachers and the local chapter of the Communications Workers of America.
A rally was held in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Lanham, Maryland, this past weekend. The event, which was called We Wont Let You Fall, was a tribute to the life and legacy of Trayvon Martin, and was held at the Mount Calvary Baptist Church...

I’m convinced George Zimmerman did the right thing, as would I...
I’ll be glad to hoist a brew in honor of the rightful demise of yet another thug that won’t be beating anybody elses brains out on a sidewalk
Oh boo hoo.
What a bastardly bunch we are.
Hope they show Tray’s street fight shoot...and that nice pic with his finger play and gold tooth...
It’s simultaneously fascinating and appalling to watch leftists attempt to create heroes out of the most unfit candidates imaginable, living or dead.
What a crock of shit. And the white guilt libs will eat it right up.
I am waiting for a statue to be erected next to the fraud communist Rosa Parks.
Here’s hoping they won’t forget “aspiring rapper” Kenny Klutch.
Rot in hell, ghetto thug POS!
Rot in hell, ghetto thug POS!
If 0bama had a son he would look like that.
He was not a high school student, he had been kicked out for being a thug. He was a gangbanger and drug dealer, and he is being celebrated because?
Maybe an innocent, cherubic 3 year old Trayvon will be sitting in her lap on a bus, eating Skittles and drinking a tall can of Arizona Iced Tea Watermelon Juice.
Are there any communities celebrating the death of this thug? ... if not, there should be.
HOLY CRAP THIS IS *NOT* SATIRE ~!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ya think Christie will lower the flag??
