Trayvon Martin Protests - PHOTOBLOG
ADDITIONAL CONTRIBUTORS BTR Editorial

In the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal on Saturday of second degree murder and manslaughter charges in the 2012 shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, hundreds of demonstrators and community leaders gathered in New York’s Union Square calling for justice, urging US officials to pursue a civil rights case, and to “bring an end to racial profiling.”

BTR’s Lauren Hawker was on hand to capture these photos of the rally.
