CP Hoodie in Trayvon Martin MarchMarch 26, 2012
Los Angeles, CA
Jodie Evans' report back:
I joined 1,000 determined demonstrators on March 26th for the rally and march supporting Trayvon Martin. I wore my CodePink hoodie and was very proud to be representing!
I saw many young boys standing tall with their fathers. I spoke to boys as young as 12 - they all said: " I want to support Trayon." I asked if they had experienced racially profiling. Everyone said "Yes." One boy told me he was afraid to walk home from school for fear of the cops.
I just finished a short film focusing on racial profiling and truancy ticketing by LAPD here in Los Angeles.
