Nationwide movement marches to Evansville in support of Trayvon's family

Posted: Updated:

A movement making its way across the country to show support for Trayvon Martin and others came to Evansville Sunday night.

Two Evansville pastors joined together to put on this demonstration and it appears to have been a great success.

"I want everybody to see that we do stand up for what we believe in, so that's why I am here," says Stacey Norman.

The display of support was overwhelming and it extended to others.

"I'm here for justice. Not only for Trayvon, but for any black child that is walking in a neighborhood where they're not known," says Stacey.

They walked from Memorial Baptist Church to the Civic Center. Men and women, adults and children, united for a cause.

"I see a lot of people hurting over this issue of the George Zimmerman acquittal, so I want to do my part to support and say you know we should all come together right now as one," says James Ashby.

The supporters stayed through the rain and to learn, to rejoice, to pray, and to smile.

"This is not just a one time thing, this is really a spark of a movement," says a supporter.

A movement that will live on.

Another supporter says she hopes demonstrators like these help bring peace to Trayvon's family.
