Hoodies in the State Capitol

This is the text of an email from Cine Ivory, chief of staff to Sen. Rod Wright, a Los Angeles Democrat:

“On Thursday, March 29, members of the California Legislative Black Caucus, Latino Legislative Caucus and Asian Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus will don their ‘hoodies’ and join together in a show of solidarity with the family of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin, who continue to seek justice in his death.  A news conference will be held at 10:00 a.m. Thursday in Room 3191 of the California State Capitol.

“All legislators and staff are encouraged to attend and to wear their ’hoodies’ on that day.  Our office has hoodies available on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis for any Legislators and staff who would like to participate in this show of solidarity but who do not have a hoodie, or who left their hoodies home in the district.  

“To request a hoodie, include your name and room number and desired size (Large, XL, 2XL, 4XL).”
