Does It Take Something Like What Happened to Trayvon Martin to Spur Action?

"What's true about activism is that oftentimes the most horrible cases are the gateways to [action]. So people come into the movement, come into the struggle because they're outraged over a case or somebody that they identify with but they stay in because they say that when we work together we can get a lot of great things done."
