Justice for Trayvon Martin #100Hoodiemarch

ImageTrayvon Martin could have been any of us. Oscar Grant, Jarrel Gray, Daniel Vail — the state, the justice system and police have failed us. 

Because of a #whitesupremacist culture, George Zimmerman will walk free and one more youth of color’s life will be cut short for nothing. Trayvon Martin will not be forgotten. 

We are calling for a One Hundred Hoodie March in Downtown Frederick in remembrance of all victims of injustice, locally, nationally and internationally. Please bring a black hoodie, and come with friends and loved ones to remember people killed or forgotten by the state. 

Meet up on the South End Park corner of Catoctin Ave. and Burke St.

Meet up at 8:30pm, leave at 9:15pm.

See you in the streets.

After the discussion we’ll switch to party mode with a potluck, music, and drinks for those of us of age.
