The Reverend Al Sharpton led a rally in Sanford, Florida Thursday to call for an arrest in the killing of an unarmed teen.
He's traveling with former Governor David Paterson.
After the rally, Sharpton will head to Alabama, where his 87-year-old mother Ada passed away this morning, to make funeral arrangements.
Hundreds gathered yesterday for a rally in Union Square in memory of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Martin was shot and killed in an Orlando suburb last month by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer.
Zimmerman says he shot the teen in self defense after a confrontation and he has not been charged.
Meanwhile, the two lawmakers who wrote Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law say Zimmerman should be arrested since he created the confrontation by following Martin.
The city commission in Sanford has voted 3-to-2 in favor of a motion of no-confidence in the local sheriff for his failure to arrest Zimmerman.
In response, Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee announced today that he is stepping down temporarily.
