Michigan Million Hoodie March centered around U of M campus will be in protest to the injustice done to Trayvon Martin and his family, and the way it was handled by Law Enforcement as well as by the Judicial system.
We have chosen the date of April 10th because this is the day in which Trayvon's Shooter, George Zimmerman, faces the Grand Jury to determine if he will be indicted. The time of 7:17 PM to BEGIN the march was chosen because this is the time in which police found Martin's body in Sanford, Florida.
The march will begin at the Trotter Multicultural Center, where we will then march down South University Avenue, followed by State Street and North University Avenue, and ending in the Diag. At the Diag, we will hold a candle light vigil for Trayvon and the millions of individuals who suffered and continue to suffer due to social injustices, where those who feel led to share their thoughts on the issue are free to do so.
Attire: Preferably, if everyone in attendance could wear a hooded sweatshirt, that would be ideal.
