THE BRONX - Dozens of people made their way from Harlem to the Bronx on Wednesday in a march dedicated to Trayvon Martin and other young men who have died in police-involved situations.

Community groups from across the city stopped at various police stations on their way to the borough's 40th Precinct on Alexander Avenue.

Participants spoke out against police brutality, poverty and inequality in the justice system.
