Dear 5849376,

Justice for Trayvon — click here to take action.

Trayvon Martin is dead, and his killer is walking free. The injustice of the situation is both palpable and maddening.

It is clear that had George Zimmerman not acted as an armed vigilante almost a year and a half ago, Trayvon Martin would still be alive.

It was Zimmerman who took it upon himself to determine that Trayvon Martin, a young African American, was "suspicious." Zimmerman then disregarded the instructions of a 911 dispatcher, first stalking and then initiating a confrontation with Trayvon Martin that left the unarmed youth dead.

But while a jury in Florida decided not to hold Zimmerman responsible for this senseless murder, the federal government can still take action.

It's hard not to conclude that Trayvon Martin was a victim of this senseless crime because of his race.

And whether intended or not, the message sent by Zimmerman's acquittal is that the value our culture places on a human life depends upon our skin color.

On the basis of our shared humanity we are all entitled to our civil rights.

And when civil rights are violated, it falls to the federal government to uphold them when the state or local government will not.
