A massive 'Justice For Trayvon' rally is scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday at Miami's Bayfront Park, hosted by U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL).
Singer Chaka Khan and the Rev. Jesse Jackson are slated to attend, demanding an arrest in the case of slain teen Trayvon Martin alongside Miami Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones, Congresswoman Corinne Brown, Congressman Al Green (D-Texas), state representative Cynthia Stafford, Miami Commissioner Barbara Jordan, singer Betty Wright, actress JoMarie Payton, and other elected officials, community leaders and clergy.
The event is believed to be the first hometown rally to be attended by Martin's parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton.
Their son, a 17-year-old Dr. Krop High student, was fatally shot while visiting his father in Sanford February 26 by self-described neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.
Although Zimmerman is claiming he shot Martin in self-defense, thousands around the country have thrown rallies calling for an arrest and protesting the circumstances that led Zimmerman to determine the teen was "suspicious" as he walked through his father's gated neighborhood.
Gates at Bayfront Park will open at 1 p.m., with the Justice for Trayvon rally starting at 4 p.m.
