Across our region, hundreds rallied in support of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teen who was shot and killed by a man claiming to be a community watch leader.

On the steps of the Capitol, some congressional staffers wearing hoodies gathered in solidarity.

The NAACP held a vigil tonight with about 200 gathered at the site of Anacostia's iconic chair.

"Trayvon Martin is our son," they chanted Trayvon Martin is our son."
