NAACP Petition to Department of Justice Reaches One Million Signatures

Petition Urges DOJ to File Charges Against George Zimmerman for the Egregious Violation of Trayvon Martin's Civil Rights.

(Orlando, FL) -- The NAACP's petition to the Department of Justice asking for federal charges, including civil rights charges, to be filed against George Zimmerman has reached one million signatures.

This major milestone was reached in just two and a half days. The petition was set up on Saturday evening shortly after the verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin was read.

Roslyn M. Brock, chairman of the NAACP National Board of Directors, was thankful for the support the petition has received.

Benjamin Todd Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP, addressed the specifics of the NAACP's request. "It is clear George Zimmerman's bias played a major role in the events that led to the death of Trayvon Martin. "

The NAACP also partnered with MoveOn.org on a petition in support of the effort.

Interested parties can still sign the petition, which will remain active and open until the Department of Justice completes their case.

Sign the petition by visiting: naacp.org/The-DOJ-Petition.  Or text "JUSTICE" to 62227.
