Beyonce and Jay Z Attend NYC Rally For Trayvon Martin

Over the weekend, power couple Jay Z and Beyonce, attended the New York City rally in support of justice for Trayvon Martin.

We are sure many people, like ourselves, were shocked when the jury rendered their not guilty verdict against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Individuals all over the world have since been expressing their concerns and speaking out on the injustice of the trial. It was heartwarming to hear the President of the United States speak on the case. It is important for people, especially African Americans, to know that in order to survive, we must stick together. Rallies have been held in a number of cities across the country with hopes of bringing a Federal law suit against Zimmerman and to shed more light on the thousands of deaths caused by gun violence each year. Celebrities are vital when it comes to situations such as this because they can use their voices to speak and hopefully bring about change. To know that Jay Z and Beyonce are very aware of the incident and that they are standing up and fighting for justice is awesome!

Beyonce also took to her Tumblr page to share pictures with Trayvon's family and from her trip to Atlanta to visit Dr. Martin Luther King's memorial.
