Marching for Trayvon
UNITED STATES – Protesters carried signs, chanted “Justice for Trayvon,” and clutched the hands of their children while they walked from Crooms Academy of Information Technology, the county’s first high school for black students, to the Sanford Police Department.
The march was organized by the NAACP and was one of several taking place over the weekend.
