The TEXAS League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) also joined the official Justice for Trayvon Martin Movement on Sunday March 25th, the TEXAS LULAC Chief of Staff, Mary Ramos stood with US Congressman Al Green and US Congresswoman Sheila Jackson and spoke to the crowd,“We must all stick together! Race and clothing are not the issues at hand but JUSTICE is. Treyvon Martin could have been my son or grandson and to be shot in cold blood for wearing a hoodie and holding skittles is an act that we must not let go unpunished. Let us not stand down until their is JUSTICE for Trayvon; the Stand Your Ground Law in Florida is destroying the American judicial system and it must be changed now!” -TEXAS LULAC Chief of Staff Mary Ramos
The event was organized by the NAACP-Houston Branch, Rev. Reginald Lillie-President and Texas NAACP, Gary Bledsoe-President. Partnering organizations and officials include, area Churches, the Houston Urban League-Judson Robinson, Executive Director, LULAC-Mary Ramos, President, Local Unions, Greek fraternities and sororities, Congressional Representatives Sheila Jackson Lee, Al Green, and a host of other officials and groups.
Houstonians of diverse races and affiliations are passionate about expressing our outrage and righteous resolve to see that justice is done in this matter. We join the National Movement calling for the arrest of George Zimmerman and a thorough investigation of the Sanford Police Department.
