Students from across the state of Florida gathered today at the Seminole County Courthouse on Monday to demand justice for Trayvon Martin. The 15-year-old black teenager was followed, confronted and killed three weeks ago by George Zimmerman, a self-appointed Neighborhood Watch captain in Sanford, Florida. Martin’s crime? Apparently, being young, black and wearing a hoodie in a predominately white neighborhood.

To date, Zimmerman has not been charged with a crime.

More than 30 Florida A&M University law students took part in the protest.
