supportbanner

 

In light of the killing of Trayvon Martin and subsequent acquittal of George Zimmerman, and the startling statistics of youth incarceration, it is apparent to many that Florida is in a state of crisis and the youth urgently need leadership.  We, the undersigned, call on Governor Rick Scott to convene a special session of the legislature to enact “Trayvon’s Law”: to repeal stand your ground, confront racial profiling, and end the school-to-prison pipeline.

We call for immediate action on this issue and all partners and organizations that care for our youth to join us in demanding that Governor Scott call for a special session of legislature to address his states’ youth crisis.

If you would like to sign for your organization, contact Ahmad Abuznaid via e-mail and include a copy of your organization’s logo to aabuznaid@dreamdefenders.org.
