Al Sharpton's Group Chooses Dayton as One of Many Protest Cities

DAYTON -- The National Action Network chose Dayton as one of 100 U.S. cities to stage direct actions in response to the not guilt verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

"When the Trayvon Martin verdict came in, people began to scream and holler 'Rev. what are you going to do,' and I have to reverse the question and ask the community 'what are you going to do?'," said Rev. Jerome McCorry of the Adam Project.

Days after the trial ended, people remain upset over George Zimmerman's not guilty verdict.

"As black people we fight so hard for justice and it seems like we are getting nowhere with it," said Pete Jones of Dayton.

"We need to be rallying, we need to be hosting gatherings we need to be engaging our young people in major conversations that leads to activism," said McCorry.

Now Dayton will host a rally in front of the Federal Courthouse on West Third and Perry Street on Saturday at 11 a.m.

Dayton is one of 100 cities nationwide that will be protesting this Saturday asking for justice for Trayvon Martin.

"We did a hoodie rally here in Dayton, which according to a lot of numbers, was one of the largest demonstrations at the time across the nation and I think because of that kind of news and that kind of concern we are becoming a go-to city for that kind of activism," said McCorry. "Every time I talk to someone on the national level about Trayvon Martin I mentioned Dante Price because I think it is important we keep all of these cases out in front of America."

Some believe Dayton is a top place for national activism because we could have the next Trayvon Martin case. This September the trial begins for the two security guards who shot and killed 25-year-old Dante Price just three days after Trayvon Martin's death.

"You have two armed security guards who are confronting an African-American male who is also unarmed, is perceived to be a threat because of the color of his skin," said McCorry. "He lost his life unfortunately at the hands of overzealous security guards much like a George Zimmerman who over zealously took the life of Trayvon Martin."

Bishop Richard Cox spoke with Dante Price's mother after the Zimmerman verdict.

"She was crying because they found this man not guilty and she was fearful that verdict in Sanford, Florida, may set a precedent for her son's case that's coming up," said Cox.

The Adam project will also have community activist, attorneys and mental health professionals on hand Thursday, July 18, at 6 at Central State University Dayton Campus on 840 Germantown Street.

The forum will allow young people to learn about the legal process and constructive ways of dealing with frustrations from the Zimmerman trial.
