Location Details:
San Francisco City Hall

With the verdict of the Trayvon Benjamin Martin case that found George Zimmerman not guilty many of us are appalled, outraged, and deeply saddened.

What we will do next as a community will be a testament to our strength, resilience, and grace when faced with adversity.

That is why, among the plethora of things that we must do next as a community to heal this grave injustice, a peaceful gathering to remember a life cut short must happen.

This gathering will occur on On Tuesday, July 16th, 2013 at 6:30 PM on the steps of City Hall in San Francisco.

Bring candles for yourself and others if you can.

Please tell your friends, family and associates.

Tonight's candlelit rally for Trayvon was a success. About three hundred showed. A number of prominent people spoke including city supervisors London Breed, Malia Cohen, Jane Kim and David Campos. Also speaking was Commissioner Andrea Shorter as well as a number of people from our faith community including Pastor Amos C Brown Sr.
