Dr. Ron Brown, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, encouraged students to register to vote. He reminded students that Martin's killer is still free due to a law entitled, "Stand Your Ground," which permits one to match force with force if they feel their life is threatened. "You can change laws like this by voting," stated Brown.
During the rally, Falcons were also asked to sign a memorial wall in honor of Martin. Various student leaders presented facts on the Martin case and some Saint Augustine's University's film and theater performed an emotional re-enactment of Martin's last moments alive.
The fight for justice on Martin's behalf remains ongoing.
