Trayvon Martin, an unarmed, 17-year-old black youth, was profiled, pursued and killed by an armed civilian. Shortly after, the Urban League of Palm Beach County marched in protest, demanding justice for Trayvon. It has taken more than a year, but the criminal justice system has rendered a not guilty verdict, one that we all must respect.
We ask that in the wake of this verdict you continue to pray and hope for continued healing for the Martin family and all who mourn his death. Also, we are urging the residents of Palm Beach County and citizens throughout Florida to remain peaceful. Our energy should be directed toward the improvement and safety of our neighborhoods.
