NAACP Staging Biker Rally in Trayvon Martin’s Memory
7/25/2013, 12:25 p.m.
ATLANTA - The Georgia State Conference NAACP (NAACP) and Trained To Go Motorcycle Club (TTGMC) Derrick Boazman, Talk Show Host of Too Much Truth and Civil Rights Activist along with other Supporters is urging the Department of Justice to file federal charges, including civil rights charges, against George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin.
In 1955, a young black man in Money, Mississippi, went to the store to buy some candy. Fifty-seven years later, another young black man in Sanford, Florida, did the same. Both trips led to a murder — one of Emmett Till and the other Trayvon Martin. It wasn't right when it happened in 1955, and it wasn't right in 2012.
The Georgia State Conference NAACP recognizes courage as a group of young NAACP leaders channeling their hurt and frustration over an appalling verdict into a decisive call to action:To stop the violence. Whether on the South Side of Chicago, or a gated community in Sanford, Florida, we must end gun violence, no matter what the perpetrator looks like.
The Georgia State Conference NAACP has partnered with TTGMC in a Motorcade and Rally to bring awareness to the community for this cause. The Motorcade of over 200 bikers will start at 1:00pm at Sam’s Club 2994 Turner Hill Road, Lithonia, GA 30058 and proceed down I-20 to join the NAACP at the Georgia State Capitol in a Rally in support of Trayvon Martin. The NAACP invites all supporters no matter what race, to join them on Sunday, July 28, 2013, in support of their efforts to demand justice for Trayvon Martin. “WE ARE TRAYVON MARTIN”
