Calling all members and friends of Picture the Homeless!
So many of us are still angry about George Zimmerman getting acquitted. PTH elder spokesman Jean Rice wrote this moving essay: "Murder Under Color of Law: Legal Lynching Within the New Jim Crow," and twenty of our members came together to come up with this important list of things we can do to make sure Trayvon Martin didn't die in vain.
And one of those things is MAKE SOME NOISE. And we all feel like shouting.
So we'll be out at One Police Plaza tomorrow, joining the National Action Network in its 100 city "Justice for Trayvon" vigils. Click here for full details, or see below:
