Bay Area Episcopal Clergy Don Hoodies in Response to Trayvon Martin Shooting

From California-

Last Tuesday, clergy members of the Episcopal Church's Diocese of California donned hoodies in front of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco to make a statement related to the Trayvon Martin case. The hoodie, one of which the 17-year-old African-American Martin was wearing the night he was shot to death by George Zimmerman, has become a symbol of the tragedy.

Sean McConnell, who does communications work for the diocese, said the photo is intended to "make a statement about generalizations that lead to young men, mostly, being victims of violence."

Everyone in the photo is either a deacon or a priest.
