VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - A group of Trayvon Martin supporters walked from Jacksonville to Sanford, where they dedicated a memorial for the teen at a museum late Saturday afternoon.
The demonstrators arrived in Sanford late Friday, ending what they called the "Walk for Dignity," which started in Jacksonville.
The group held a community forum Saturday afternoon, followed by a dedication of the Trayvon Martin memorial at the Goldsboro Westside Historical Museum.
"The most important reason why we're
here, we want a system that treats us equally," marcher Estefania Galvis said.
The group's six-day walk from Jacksonville to Sanford was organized to bring awareness of what
it believes are injustices due to laws relating to stand your ground. It's an issue that hasn't quit since Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder in Martin's death.
Additionally, the group is calling for the resignation of State Attorney Angela Corey, who was the special prosecutor in the George Zimmerman case.
"She is the representative of the system that has failed us. That's the first step, we want a new system," Galvis said.
The marchers also went door-to-door in the Sanford community earlier on Saturday to egage and connect with local residents.
