Remember today is the * 100 City Vigil * Justice for #Trayvon * Saturday, Noon July 20 at your City's Federal Court Building around the country.

Different organizations have scheduled their event in different locations and times. Check your favorite search engine for times and locations.

Sorry to make such a short diary and just a straight political announcement but I thought this event is important to the DailyKos community.

Trayvon Martin's parents will be in New York City and Maimi. Trayvon's mother will be with Al Sharpton in New York City and Trayvon's father is set for Maimi.

Trayvon Martin's parents are set to join Reverend Al Sharpton in his nationwide "Justice for Trayvon" day this weekend. The efforts, which will take place in 100 cities, will urge for federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.
Rallies and vigils will be held in front of federal buildings all over the country on Saturday.  Martin's mother and brother, Sabrina and Jahvaris Fulton, will join Sharpton outside of the New York Police Department headquarters. His father, Tracy Martin, will attend an event at Miami's federal courthouse.

It's been almost one week since a court in Sanford, Florida, handed down the George Zimmerman verdict, and outrage is still running high. Protests have erupted across the U.S., in cities from Los Angeles to New York -- and, yes, in Miami, the city where Trayvon Martin was from.
The string of events to commemorate Martin's life and protest the Zimmerman verdict continues this Saturday, when a pair of simultaneous vigils in New York and Miami, led by Martin's family members, will anchor peaceful events in 100 cities nationwide, the National Action Network (NAN) announced today.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
