The Alliance for Police Accountability is calling all COMMUNITY MEMBERS (ESPECIALLY THE YOUTH), politicians, community organizations, faith based institutions, and community groups to stand together to protest the verdict in the case against George Zimmerman and demand that the DOJ file civil rights violation charges. The verdict has sent the wrong message. Stand with us as we send the right one!! We will not stand for any victims of profiling to be criminalized and go without getting justice.
This case has reminded us of the grave injustices and the many Trayvon Martin's that we have right here at home in Pittsburgh! Let's make a resounding noise and presence and make it clear that WE WANT AN END TO RACIAL PROFILING AND THE PROFILING OF ANY ONE IN OUR CITY!! No one should be subjected to such prejudice whether it be for the way that they dress, their race, religion and/or sexual orientation.
The phenomenal and nationally known rapper/activist Jasiri X will perform his Trayvon Martin and Jordan Miles' songs. We will rally, be heard, discuss solutions, protest and then celebrate our commitment to fighting injustices and to one another!WHAT: Rally Seeking Justice For Trayvon Martin And All Victims Of Profiling
WHEN: Saturday, July 20, 2013, Noon
WHERE: William S. Moorhead Federal Building, 1000 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 (map)
