KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C.--About 100 people attended a rally Sunday in Kings Mountain to show support for the family of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

Members of the organization True Healing Under God (T.H.U.G.) discussed ways in which they could create more diversity in local communities and build closer connections between city leaders and residents.

The group's organizers said they would continue to fight hard for justice.

"We feel like we can almost taste justice, and we feel like justice will prevail" T.H.U.G. organizer John Barnett said.

The organization plans on holding similar rallies in Salsbury, Chester and other cities in Florida and Virginia.
