Quote:Eric Holder, Trayvon Martin's mother to speak in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA - July 22, 2013 (WPVI) -- The mother of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will speak in Philadelphia at the National Urban League's annual conference, which will focus on civil rights, voting rights and job creation.

The four-day event, which begins Wednesday, comes less than a month after the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act and not long after the man who shot Martin was acquitted in the racially charged case.

The league is one of the nation's oldest civil rights organizations. The conference, titled "Redeem the Dream: Jobs Rebuild America," is expected to attract about 6,000 people and also focus on strengthening economic opportunities for African-Americans, CEO Marc Morial said.

Holder will talk Thursday about the high court's controversial ruling, which threw out a provision requiring all or parts of 15 states with histories of voting discrimination - mainly in the South- to get federal approval before changing the way they hold elections.

Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, will speak Friday. She supports Holder's decision to investigate whether her son's killer, George Zimmerman, could be charged under federal civil rights laws. A jury acquitted Zimmerman in Martin's death, finding that he acted in self-defense.

In both discussions, "what we're hoping they will produce is certainly more knowledge, more information and more mobilization around the issues of voting rights and also justice," said Philadelphia Urban League President Patricia Coulter.

Trayvon violated zimmerman's rights by calling him a 'creepy ass cracka' and fearing zimmerman might rape him, thereby accusing him of potential homsexuality and judging him with negative bias because of it.
