NEW YORK - From New York to California, demonstrators are rallying against a Florida verdict acquitting George Zimmerman in the death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.
In Manhattan on Sunday, Rev. Jacqueline Lewis of Middle Collegiate Church wore a pink hooded sweatshirt and told her congregation, "We're going to raise our voices against the root causes of this kind of tragedy."
Protests are planned around the country Sunday, a day after a jury found the former neighborhood watch volunteer not guilty. The case unleashed debate across the U.S. over racial profiling, self-defense and equal justice.
After the verdict, some angry protesters in Oakland, Calif., broke windows, burned flags and started small street fires. In Florida, about 200 demonstrators marched in Tallahassee carrying signs that said "Racism is Not Dead" and "Who's Next?"
