Join US–Friday March 23rd
Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed has organized a march to help bring attention to the Trayvon Martin case. The march starts at 10:00 am at St. Louis City Hall.
Seventeen year-old Trayvon Martin was shot to death by a neighborhood watch captain in Sanford Florida. evidence from 911 calls made by the watch captain, as well as by neighbors, conflict with the watch captain’s claim of self-defense. The individual was not charge with a crime initially, but after a public outcry for justice State and Federal officials are now looking into the case.
“The killing of Trayvon Martin was a senseless tragedy. The fact that injustices such as this still occur in 2012, means we still have a lot of work to do as a nation. We must also begin to match the intensity of this national response, with the response to murders that occur in our own community almost everyday,” said President Reed.
Marches are happening across the nation to draw attention to this tragedy and to serve as a wake-up call on the over-abundance of gun violence directed at ur youth.
