#Plan4Trayvon

Digital activist Sara Haile-Mariam sent me this extremely powerful video she created, which chronicles the 911 tapes that preceded and followed the death of Trayvon Martin and highlights the pervasive violence that plagues black youth nationwide.

The video calls on viewers to tell their own stories and provides them with a hashtag for amplifying their voices—the contemporary equivalent of a soapbox.

#Plan4Trayvon is growing quickly and Plan4Trayvon.com was built as a reaction to that response. This site will chronicle the movement that is not just demanding justice for Martin but also honoring his legacy through individual acts.
