As most of you know, George Zimmerman has been found not guilty for murder of Trayvon Martin by a mostly white jury. It's yet another reminder that our judicial system is in a state of profound disfunction. Trayvon's death is a symptom of a national illness that allows for the targeting of young black men. Though his death and trial took place in Florida, we know that the outcome is a blow to justice everywhere. An injustice to one is an injustice to all.
We will not stand idly by in the face of this assault. We've began a plan to mobilize our community into action. Join us tomorrow at 6pm at the Hennepin County Government Center. Come to express your sorrow, your rage, and your continuing demand for justice for Trayvon, Terrance Franklin and all of the youth who have been unjustly targeted in America.
