Exclusive: Trayvon Martin-inspired group Million Hoodies makes call to action under Trump

The Million Hoodies Movement for Justice, a black human rights organization inspired by the Trayvon Martin case, has issued a call for increased vigilance and resistance under Donald Trump's administration.

In a video campaign released exclusively to Mic, Million Hoodies amplifies the voices of members concerned about what their lives will be like under Trump, who they say is anti-black, anti-LGBTQ and anti-gender equality.

"In this video statement, we are sending a message about what's at stake for the next four years with an administration that has promised to harm our communities," Million Hoodies executive director Dante Barry said in a statement.

"It is incumbent that young people find ways to get politically activated and involved to protect the security of so many people," Barry said.

The video opens with the question: How do you feel as a member of an impacted community about Trump coming into office?

"I feel betrayed," one member said in the video.

"I fear for my mother who wears hijab," another member said.

"We don't need to listen to [Trump's] speech," a female member said. "We should already comprehend where he is coming from."

"Black people continue to get erased from the conversation," said Barry, who also appears in the video.
