Tallahassee, FL - FAMU is holding a stand your ground law forum with guest speakers including the father of Trayvon Martin.
The Stand Your Ground debate stemmed from the shooting death of Trayvon Martin and even though it was in Central Florida, people here and across the nation protested the arrest of George Zimmerman.
The forum is being held from 3:30 to 5:30 today in Lee Hall Auditorium and a question and answer session is being held with moderators.
