vigils for Trayvon Martin across the country – Detroit, Monday, March 26, at 6 p.m

Dear MoveOn member,
Tomorrow, on the one-month anniversary of Trayvon’s murder, there will be vigils for Trayvon Martin across the country, including one in Detroit.
By now, you’ve probably heard about Trayvon—the 17 year-old African-American student in Florida who was shot by a self-appointed neighborhood vigilante while returning from a local convenience store. Trayvon was carrying nothing but an iced tea and a bag of Skittles.
So many of us have cried over this story. And literally millions of us have spoken out against this travesty through online petitions, photos, messages shared on Facebook, and rallies. Now there will be vigils for Trayvon tomorrow across America.
Here’s the info on the rally in Detroit tomorrow:
Justice for Trayvon Martin rally
Monday, March 26, at 6 p.m.
Hart Plaza
Detroit, MI
You can find more information about this important event at http://www.moveon.org/r?r=273344.
There’s been vigils, rallies, and marches in cities around the country over the last week— all organized by regular people who are standing up to racism and senseless hate violence.
Local organizers are hoping to build a big crowd to show the media and authorities that from coast to coast, we stand united for justice and against racial profiling. These are also opportunities for us to come together as communities to celebrate the life and mourn the loss of a young man who died too young.
This is our opportunity, as members of the MoveOn community, to join in this movement for justice and to share with our friends, neighbors, and loved ones the story of Trayvon Martin. It’s a way we can help stop yet another American tragedy.
Thanks for all you do.

–Justin, Garlin, Marika, Elena, and the rest of the team
