Dress code for Tucson rally for Trayvon Martin

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A local rally will be happening tomorrow, that revolves around the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case, this one will have a dress code.

The rally will happen at Lakeside Park, near Golf Links and Pantano, it will be based there but could spread to other parts of Tucson.  The hope is that the rally will be filled with participants in hoodies. 

The organizer of the rally stated that people can run, walk or bike ride for Trayvon Martin, the urge is to do so with hoodies on.

Martin's black hoodie has drawn notice and has become a symbol of those frustrated by the death and Zimmerman's acquittal. 

The rally organizer also stated that she will be accepting donations to Martin's foundation, but even more so wants people to show support for Martin and his family.

Tucson has seen its share of rallies and demonstrations, as has the U.S. and some of them have turned violent, this rally though appears to be less political and more a show of support for Martin's parents.

The rally is taking place on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will start at Lakeside Park.
