'100 Hooded Men March' in Columbus over Trayvon Martin killing

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Columbus State University Collegiate 100 and campus NAACP will host a hooded men march in honor of the Florida teen, Trayvon Martin who was killed by a volunteer Neighborhood Watch leader.

Students from CSU and members of the community will march this Saturday wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and carry packs of skittles.

 Similar marches and rallies have taken place throughout the country. Celebrities and athletes have all been honoring Martin by wearing their hoods.

The Columbus State University students are calling for justice in this case.

"This is something we are passionate about, this is something we don't agree on and we want to raise awareness about it," says Jules Charles, Collegiate 100 member.

The march is scheduled to start at 10 am Saturday morning in front of the Bradley Theatre.

Several city leaders are expected to be in attendance.
