On February 26, 2012, Martin, a17-year-old Florida teen, was gunned down by his neighbor, George Zimmerman, who says he felt threatened by him. Investigators say Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman was never arrested or charged, and that's what has created a National controversy.
Rallies have been held across the country and the calls for justice have caused the police chief to temporarily step down.
The community is encouraged to attend the rally.
