People all over the nation are gathering in support of Trayvon Martin, even right here in Savannah. Police blocked off Wright Square Saturday afternoon as activists push for justice and new legislation.
"I just want to see everyone get along," said supporter James Colley.
Saturday's message revolved around justice with many focusing on wanting to repeal the ‘Stand Your Ground' law.
Other people support the jury's decision after acquitting the George Zimmerman for Martin's death. However, State Senator Lester Jackson was there offering a solution to those that want see change.
"The reason we have ‘Stand Your Ground' in Florida and in Georgia and thirty other states is because we don't vote," said Rep. Jackson
He recommended everyone to not only register to vote but also to make a difference in the community.
"I was speaking about getting involved politically, with your community, with your church," said Rep. Jackson. "Get involved so that we can move forward."
A rally that many hope will bring the community closer together.
"Group efforts like this are necessary to real change," said supporter Marcia Miller.
