Dream Defenders leave Tallahassee
TALLAHASSEE -- After 30 nights of sleeping at the capitol, the Dream Defenders are calling it quits.
The group has been at the governor's office since July 16th.
That was three days after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
They promised to stay until Governor Scott called a Special Session on the "Stand your Ground" law.
That hasn't happened yet.
But the group says they'll be back in Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers at the end of September.
We're just getting begun, we love everyone that supports us, we love folks that don't support us. They provide us with an alternative opinion. We'll be back."
The group says they have secured with FDLE and other state agencies to address the 'Stand your Ground' law, racial profiling and the School to Prison Pipeline.
