COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Shortly after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed, rallies were held across the country calling for justice.

Hundreds of people gathered in Finlay Park in March of 2012, many wearing hoodies, carrying skittles and cans of iced tea.

Kyle Greene said people have been reaching out to him on Facebook asking him about organizing another event.  The demonstration last year drew legislators and community leaders, so many are looking to him to organize something now after the verdict was announced Saturday.

"Because of him being found not guilty by the jurors, a lot of people have a lot of built up aggression and I'm not really sure how to channel that aggression," said Greene. "I think right now if I was to plan anything it would be along the lines of a prayer vigil."
