Location: Washington, DC

Today, Trayvon Martin would have celebrated his 18th birthday. In honor of Trayvon's life Congressman Bobby L. Rush cosponsored a resolution along with Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL).

"This is a call to end racial profiling in America," said Rush. "In order for our nation to move forward and see every one of our youth as intrinsically valuable and not be judged because of their skin, I as a Member of Congress will not allow Trayvon's death to be in vain."

On the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida Trayvon was allegedly murdered by George Zimmerman, the appointed neighborhood watch coordinator for the gated community where Trayvon was visiting his father at the time of the shooting.
