The parents of Trayvon Martin have created a new website aimed at changing the controversial "Stand Your Ground" law.
According to the new committee called "Change for Trayvon" and a website will collect funds to "be distributed to candidates, elected officials and efforts which support the mission of... revising Stand Your Ground laws across the nation to ensure there is judicial or prosecutorial oversight."
Martin's parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, speak to users on the site via video. PayPal links are also included for donations, the reports.
The website is located at the URL ChangeForTrayvon.com.
In related news, attorneys for former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman say prosecutors are dragging their feet on turning over some evidence and not turning over other information in a timely manner.
On Monday Zimmerman's attorney's also said prosecutors are providing some discovery in a format that's useless for defense experts to examine. They're asking for monthly hearings to manage the turnover of evidence from prosecutors to defense lawyers.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Martin during a confrontation in a central Florida gated community last February.
Zimmerman's attorneys also asked prosecutors for cellphone photos taken by a witness and a police officer on the night of the shooting.
A spokeswoman for the State Attorney's Office didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
