LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds gathered in Little Rock Saturday for the Trayvon Martin Peaceful March for Justice.
"It's about people in general, and I want the record to be clear today that we would do the same thing if it were a white man's (or) a white lady's son or daughter," said Reverend Tyrone Broomfield, an organizer of the event.
The march started at the Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock, crossed the Broadway Bridge and ended at the Federal Courthouse in Little Rock.
"The lessons we're going to take from the trial is, number one, always be in a position where we have a witness. The other thing... we're not going to get caught in this same trap anymore," said Broomfield.
Organizers stressed the importance of peace at a time when emotions run high.
