This fundraiser seeks to raise $60 to replace a plaque that reads "In Memory of Trayvon Martin, America's Son". The original plaque cost me $100. Of the 3000 plaques in place, this plaque is the first and only one to be pried from the pedestrian bridge. I have asked the Des Moines Parks department to replace the plaque and protect minority speech, speech that may not be to the liking of some passersby. They say NO and want another $60.  I ask that you give no more than $5 so that we can make the fundraiser a community effort. Once the plaque goes up, I ask you to keep an eye on it. A link to Rekha Basu's Des Moines Register article about the plaque follows.
