#MillionHoodies Movement

The Million Hoodies Movement for Justice is a multiracial alliance of concerned citizens, civil society organizations, and community leaders who are fed up with the unprecedented levels of unrestrained violence directed at young people of color in this country.

We will commemorate Trayvon Martin's death on Sunday, August 25, the day after the 50th Anniversary March on Washington and continue the fight for justice for young people of color by demanding Congress pass the End Racial Profiling Act: http://takeaction.takepart.com/actions/eliminate-racial-profiling-law-enforcement

We work to elevate the profile of victims and families who have lost loved ones as a result of racial profiling and senseless gun violence. Our work recognizes that the conditions that caused the death of Trayvon Martin and many others like him are deeply embedded in institutional injustice and structural violence. While accountability in individual cases is important, we realize that we must attack the core inequalities in our society if we are to put a stop to the senseless deaths and systemic violence inflicted on people of color every day.
