1.7 Million Signatures Delivered to DOJ in Response to Trayvon Martin Murder

After George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin, 1.7 million MoveOn members and NAACP supporters called on the Department of Justice to bring federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman. On August 26, 2013, after the DOJ agreed to consider bringing charges, the NAACP and MoveOn delivered the petition signatures as part of a broader campaign against the kind of racial profiling that led to Trayvon Martin’s death.
