BUFFALO, NY - Several hundred people are expected to attend a rally to remember Trayvon Martin in Buffalo on Saturday.

Martin was 17 and unarmed when he was shot and killed by a community watchman George Zimmerman. He was found not guilty by a Florida jury last weekend.

The National Action Network, headed by Rev. Al Sharpton is organizing the 100 city vigil and rally events. Buffalo is one of the cities hosting a rally. Busses are expected to roll in from Rochester and Syracuse for the "Justice for Trayvon" event.

Sybrina Fulton and her surviving son Jahvaris Fulton will join Sharpton in New York City.

Trayvon's father Tracy Martin will attend an event in Miami. This week Tracy Martin was in Buffalo attending the International Free and Accepted Modern Masons and Order of the Eastern Star convention. Members say he expressed disappointment in the verdict and that anyone upset should express their disappointment in an orderly manner.
