National Rallies for Trayvon Martin(30 images)

Several rallies and vigil's have taken place around the country in support of the family of Trayvon Martin. Martin, a 17-year-old, was shot and killed in a gated community by 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman on February 26, 2012 in Sanford, Florida. The Justice Department and FBI has also opened an investigation into the death of the unarmed teenager. Zimmerman has not been charged.

Several thousand students from historically black universities join local residents, some wearing hoodies, as they hold hands in solidarity at a rally for slain youth Trayvon Martin in front of the state Capitol in Atlanta on March 26, 2012. A Capitol policeman said it was the largest rally in recent memory and several downtown streets were closed down, snarling the evening rush hour. UPI/David Tulis | License Photo
