TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Jacksonville residents are getting involved in statewide demonstrations against the George Zimmerman verdict.

"I've been a victim of racial profiling. I am a Trayvon and I know other Trayvons in my neighborhood and I'm just here to end this," said Biko Misabiko of Jacksonville.
 
21-year-old Misabiko traveled three hours to state capitol to take over Tuesday.

"I was just so excited to join the movement because we could change something if we stick together. I think in Jacksonville we really needed to get this going," said Misabiko.

He joined the Dream Defenders from FAMU to get a message out to the governor. Misabiko was at Jacksonville's Hemming Plaza demonstration on Sunday and said this unity is needed on the First Coast.

"We had little children that wanted answers. They want something to be done so this won't happen to their generation," said Misabiko.

Ciara Taylor, a FAMU graduate who just moved to Jacksonville, is starting a local Dream Defenders chapter.

"Already there is another Trayvon Martin and his name is Jordan Davis so we need to stop allowing murderers to get away in our state for killing young black unarmed teens," said Taylor.
