Trayvon Martin's Birthday Party

Meet at the Maplewood Senior Center, 106 Burnet Ave., Maplewood, NJ. We will march from there to the Springfield Avenue Gazebo.

Join us as we take a (short) walk for our annual remembrance for Trayvon Martin-- his life, his death, and what it tells us about fighting for a better America. There will be treats and goodies as we walk a path learning his story.
