About the Town Hall

After the acquittal of George Zimmerman, we cried for the deep injustice we witnessed. In the days following the verdict, we are out in the streets, demonstrating, marching, chanting, sharing the experience publicly, and making sure the rest of the country and the world sees that we will not be silent.

Although the marching in the streets, by necessity of the demands of our daily lives, will die down, our resolve to fulfill the promises we have made to fight for justice for Trayvon Martin and all the young lives we have lost to gun violence, racial profiling, and police violence wont.

The Hip Hop Caucus' grassroots and national leadership has put forth a long-term organizing plan, honoring our collective promise to continue to the fight for justice, and for civil and human rights in the 21st century.

Join this Virtual Town Hall on July 31st, sign up today! We will be discussing our next steps and asking you to stay involved. For more information on our plan, check out: www.respectmyvote.com/trayvon.
