Jesse Jackson joins the sit-in in Tallahassee

TALLAHASSEE  --  A protest in Florida's state capitol is becoming a focal point for national civil rights leaders.
The Dream Defenders were joined by Reverend Jesse Jackson today.

Jesse Jackson: "We intend to sit-in so justice can standup."
Jackson's visit helped kick-off "The People's Session" -- the mock legislative session is the Dream Defenders version of a special legislative session.
   
The group is trying to highlight what they are calling policies harmful to Florida's youth.
   
Things like the Stand your Ground law and racial profiling.
"Our roles as citizens are not to abide by a governance. It is to step up and take your part in it."
"We're going to bring in more adults and more ministers and more bishops, more students from around the state to mobilize in Tallahassee."

As the fight continues for the group the likelihood of a Special Session still remains very unlikely.
