Politicians, celebrities, and parents around the country have spoken out about the injustice ensuing throughout the Trayvon Martin case. In remembrance of the teen, people have shared their condolences through marches, songs, and most popular, hooded pictures.

What’s most touching about the entire situation is the involvement from our youth. For many, this is the heartbreaking introduction to the tough realities that we face in our communities today. But in order to put a stop to what we endure, we must stand as a unit and speak against our unjust system.

Take a look at a few children who attended the marches, posted pictures via social media, and even took part of a special photo shoot by Eunique Gibson Jones.
