The association is the nation’s oldest and largest association of African-American lawyers and judges.
In a statement released after Zimmerman was acquitted of Trayvon’s death, National Bar Association President John E. Page stated: “The verdict says an unarmed college-bound Black teen can be profiled, stalked, confronted and killed by an armed neighborhood watchman with hollow tip point bullets. We express our heartfelt condolences to Trayvon Martin‘s family on this tragic verdict. We also say ‘Enough is Enough — It is NOT OK to kill our youth.”
Later this week, Martin and Fulton will also speak during the National Association of Black Journalists conference in Kissimmee.
