On July 15, students rallied at UCSC's Quarry Plaza then marched to downtown Santa Cruz during an "I am Trayvon Martin" solidarity demonstration.

After arriving at the Santa Cruz town clock, candles were lit and speakers shared their thoughts, then the march resumed through the downtown and on to the court house.

The demonstration was organized by the students and interns of UCSC's African American Resource & Cultural Center (AARCC), who encouraged individuals to wear hoodies, and bring candles and signs for the march. An announcement for the event read, "Santa Cruz we cant be quiet about this!!! We have to stand up and be unified and speak up about this injustice! We are all Trayvon Martin!"
