Vice Chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson joined State Representative Cynthia Stafford, County Commissioners Barbara Jordan and Jean Monestime, other elected officials and over 1,000 residents at a rally in support of "Justice for Trayvon Martin" held Sunday, April 1, 2012 at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. A number of speakers and rally-goers called for an arrest in the case of the young man's death.

A number of similar protests have taken place in Florida and throughout the country as supporters of Trayvon Martin's family await the outcome of an investigation into the February 26th incident when Trayvon was shot by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida as he walked home from a trip to the local store.
