STATEMENT ON TRAYVON MARTIN VERDICT FROM MICHAEL SKOLNIK

Statement delivered July 13, 2013

I am deeply saddened by the decision made by the jury in the murder trial of George Zimmerman. However, as disappointed as I am in their belief that Mr. Zimmerman is not guilty of the death of Trayvon Martin, I respect the verdict. As we try to move forward, my deepest thoughts and most sincere prayers are with the family and friends of Trayvon. For all of those who have supported the Justice For Trayvon movement over the past seventeen months, we are humbly thankful for your peaceful commitment to fighting for a better America.

One day, we will arrive at the top of the mountain realizing that every young person, regardless of race, class, color or creed, has the right to walk safely home with a nothing but a bag of skittles and a can of ice tea in their hands. Until then, our work is not done. 

Please support the work the family of Trayvon Martin is doing in his memory by visiting www.TrayvonMartinFoundation.org and make a pledge to continue fighting with this beautiful family. And remember no matter how we express our sorrow, we will always express it peacefully.

Rest in peace Trayvon Benjamin Martin.

~Michael Skolnik
