The “1,000,000 Hoodie March” is coming to Iowa City on March 26th. A Facebook page to gain support for the event has been laucnhed. Here is information on the event:
JOIN US IN THE PED MALL – Throw on your hoodies and come gather at the Fountain Stage in the Iowa City Ped Mall to show your support for justice for Trayvon Martin on Monday, March 26th at 6:30pm.
The event will include a moment of silence for Trayvon, several speakers from our community, a march for justice, and a speak-out where people can share their own experiences, thoughts, and feelings.
A black person in a hoodie isn’t automatically “suspicious”. Let’s put an end to racial profiling!
MARCH ON THE PED MALL!
Trayvon was walking home from buying Skittles at the local store, so we encourage you to bring some Skittles with you as well!
