North American Division Calls for Justice in Trayvon Martin Death

The following statement on the Trayvon Martin tragedy was released March 26, 2012, by Pastor Dan Jackson, president of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists. 

Leaders and members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America join with others in the deep concern of the senseless violent acts surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin one month ago. Young Trayvon fits the description of many of our youth, many of our own children. We join in mourning with his family and friends and pray for justice to be found in this situation and the love of Christ to be manifested in our communities.
