Subject: Our son Trayvon
Our son didn't deserve to die. Trayvon Martin was just 17 years old when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. Trayvon wasn't doing anything besides walking home with a bag of Skittles and some iced tea in his hands.
What makes Trayvon's death so much harder is knowing that the man who confessed to killing him, George Zimmerman, still hasn't been charged for Trayvon's killing.
That's why we started a petition on Change.org calling for Zimmerman's prosecution and trial. We aren't looking for revenge, we're looking for justice -- the same justice anyone would expect if their son were shot and killed for no reason.
Click here to join 1,500,000 people who have already signed our petition calling for justice for our son Trayvon.
No family should ever have to go through this nightmare. The law should protect everyone, regardless of where they live, how much money they make, or what color their skin is.
With our petition at 1,500,000 signers so far, we've made important progress toward making some sense out of what happened. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate Trayvon's death, and so will the FBI and Department of Justice.
But Trayvon's killer is still free. The surest path to justice runs through Sanford, Florida. With your help, we believe they'll have no choice but to give Trayvon and his killer their days in court.
Please sign our petition calling on Florida authorities to prosecute our son's confessed killer.
Thank you so much.
