Over 100 US cities will hold “Justice for Trayvon" vigils Saturday at federal court buildings across the country.

Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, and Martin’s brother, Jahvaris, will attend a rally in New York City, along with Sharpton. Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, is attending a vigil in Miami.

With the vigils, organizers are trying to build momentum for the Obama administration to file federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman.
