The “Day of Remembrance Community Peace Walk”, which starts 10 a.m. Saturday (Feb. 09) at Ives Estate Park in Miami, will focus on “motivating youth on peaceful conflict resolutions instead of gun violence,” the law firm representing the Trayvon Martin’s family said in a statement.
Trayvon was fatally shot by George Zimmerman in a Sanford townhouse community on Feb. 26, 2012. Prosecutors say Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder, profiled and killed the teen. Zimmerman says he fired in self defense. The case, which sparked protests and rallies last year, is set for trial in June.
Trayvon Martin would have celebrated his 18th birthday Tuesday.
