VSU for Trayvon Martin

Last night at the "Rally for Change" our Political Action Committee Chair, Amber Worthty announced that our chapter will be taking the lead on the discussion of the Trayvon Martin incident in Sanford, Florida with our "Do I Look Suspicious?" campaign in the wake of a national outrage and concern for how the Trayvon Martin incident is being handled. The "Do I Look Suspicious?" campaign will be an organized, committed and responsible effort to educate the campus about Trayvon Martin and why we should all be concerned whether you are Black, Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian or what ever you consider your ethnicity or background to be. As Amber said last night "We want justice!... Not only because of the concern of racial profiling but because a 17 year old boy has been murdered and no arrest has been made". The VSU NAACP along with millions around the nation are demanding justice for Trayvon Martin. Our "Do I Look Suspicious?" campaign on VSU campus starts now!
