Another Trayvon Martin Rally Planned In Birmingham
BIRMINGHAM - AL —
There will be another Trayvon Martin rally tonight in Kelly Ingram Park. It will begin at 7. Tonight's rally follows one Monday where nearly 100 people participated. Organizers say psychologists will be available at the event tonight to talk to people.
Organizers also say there will be a vigil for Trayvon Martin on Saturday in Kelly Ingram Park. It will begin at noon. According to organizers, 100 cities will participate and people from throughout Alabama and parts of Georgia will come to the event. Organizers also hope Saturday's vigil will encourage Attorney General Eric Holder to pursue federal charges against George Zimmerman.
The former neighborhood watch volunteer was found not guilty by an all-female jury. Since the verdict, there have been protests and rallies across the United States.
