TULSA - Tulsa's YWCA held a candlelight vigil Tuesday to honor Trayvon Martin and promote racial healing.
The vigil began at 7:30 p.m. at John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park in downtown Tulsa.
Dozens turned out for the vigil and wore black to honor the memory of Trayvon Martin.
Supporters say the rally is a way to bring people together after the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict spanned protests across the nation.
Community leaders say the rally is a way to continue the conversation about race in America.
"People don't know how to talk about race and we want people to know nothing will change unless we learn as a community as a society to talk about race," YWCA Tulsa Chief Executive Officer Felicia Collins Correia said.
A list of speakers shared racial experiences, shared poems and talked about race relations in the community.
