It has been six months since the tragic, untimely demise of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on February 26 by George Zimmerman.

Rev. Al Sharpton, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin marked the six-month anniversary of Trayvon’s death by gathering at a Tallahassee church. They were joined by attorney Benjamin Crump and former FAMU marching band member Robert Champion’s parents.

They all joined hands in praise and worship to promote social justice awareness at Bethel Missionary Baptist Church. Rev. Al Sharpton told the congregation he has never worked with a family with more integrity and strength than Trayvon’s Martin family, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

“In six months of activism, in six months of passion, the day has set a tone that I think Martin Luther King, I believe, would be proud of,” Sharpton said. “It has been completely nonviolent, completely reductive.”

Tracy Martin told reporters it was “fitting” they came on “social justice Sunday because justice is what we are seeking.”

“We continue to do it in a manner we know Trayvon is proud of,” he said.
