Tell Marc Anthony to Support "Trayvon's Law"
The way Trayvon Martin, an unarmed minor, was wrongly percieved as dangerous, pursued, and killed by an armed middle-aged man who has yet to be held accountable for it by our justice system is a threat to young people of color everywhere in this country. African American artists like Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, and Kanye West have been leading the fight for justice and we have an opportunity to get Latino artists to do the same.
Puerto Rican superstar Marc Anthony knows what it's like to be racially profiled after he sang "God Bless America" at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and he was the target of racist tweets that assumed he wasn't a U.S. citizen. He has a concerts in Florida from Aug. 23-25. If he publicly supports "Trayvon's Law" at his concerts in front of thousands of fans, it could be just the wave needed to force the conservative state government in Florida to take action, or at the very least send a strong message to the rest of the country.
If 10,000 people call on Marc Anthony to publicly support "Trayvon's Law" at his concerts, your petition signatures will be personally delivered to him. "Trayvon's Law," spearheaded by the Florida Dream Defenders, would help reduce gun violence, racial profiling, and the criminalization of young people of color.
