JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Signs were drawn, music was turned up loud, and chants could be heard from across the street at a Monday afternoon rally for Jordan Davis.
Demonstrator Anita Shepherd says they gathered for one reason.
"It was disappointing for them not to reach a verdict on the killing of a young man," says Shepherd.
Davis supporter Faizah Mixon says she would love to ask the Michael Dunn jury questions to understand how a mistrial happened.
"How can you come up guilty on attempted murder but a young man lost his life and there's no verdict? You couldn't come up with that? -" asked Mixon.
As demonstrators passed out information to drivers, Maura Wolfson-Foster got out of her car and joined the rally for a few minutes.
"It makes me very sad, but I'm proud of all these people that are here today and I wish I could do more," said Wolfson-Foster.
Anika Toure with the New Jim Crow Movement says their actions are far from over and are calling for the public to wear black ribbons on Tuesday as a physical sign of disagreement with the mistrial and support for Jordan Davis.
"This ribbon is going to signify all of the black and brown that's being murdered," says Toure.
The Jacksonville Progressive Coalition says they will host several events including more rallies until a retrial gives them the verdict they desire. The next rally being planned is what they're calling a 'hoodies up' rally for Feb. 26 at Hemming Plaza.
