Clergy leaders, community members march through Central District in support of Trayvon Martin

A large group, led by the United Black Christian Clergy, marched through the Central District last night in support of Trayvon Martin. The group chanted “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” and held signs that read “Justice for Trayvon Martin.”

The march began with a prayer at the Greater Mount Baker Baptist Church lead by Rev. Dr. Samuel McKinney of the Mount Zion Baptist Church. Marchers then proceeded down Martin Luther King Jr. Way to Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, following the same path of the thousands that demonstrated in March.

The group that marched last night joins others around the country in calling for the Justice Department to investigate George Zimmerman for civil rights violations in the killing of Trayvon Martin, and for the amendment or removal of the “Stop and Frisk” and “Stand Your Ground” laws many believe led to Zimmerman’s acquittal.
