Trayvon Martin Rally Planned in Roanoke

Posted: Updated:

Two Roanoke mothers are organizing a Justice for All rally and peaceful protest in support of Trayvon Martin.

Following George Zimmerman's acquittal Saturday, Samaria Pope, 29 and Maricca Penn, 30, both of Roanoke, were inspired to organize the city-wide event.

The event is scheduled to take place Saturday at 6 p.m.

It will begin at the MLK Memorial Bridge and end at the Poff Federal Building.

Roanoke will join more than 200 cities across the nation.
