NAHJ CENTRAL FLORIDA CHAPTER Q & A WITH GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’S BROTHER

Robert Zimmerman Q & A with
NAHJ Central Florida Chapter

The George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case in central Florida has grabbed national and international attention ever since the shooting death in February 2012. It’s a story that many of our NAHJ members have been covering in Sanford, Florida outside Orlando.

On November 1st, the NAHJ Central Florida Chapter invited George Zimmerman’s older brother, Robert to its “Café con Leche” event. About 30 people attended the Q & A session; even reporters from the local media covered the event.

Robert Zimmerman has become the spokesman for the family. His brother, George is out on bond on murder charges and is scheduled to go on trial in June 2013.

Chapter Vice President, Jose Luis Dieppa says about Robert Zimmerman “In a nutshell he was very candid and did not answer anything related to the defense or anything that will have put in risk the family security.”

Check out the stories by The Orlando Sentinel and an interview by News 13’s, Ybeth Bruzual, also an NAHJ member.

  1. Hat’s off to you for the invitation to Trayvon’s parents. I hope they take you up on the offer. I’ll say no comment on your guest on November 1st as I find his no-race card while playing the race card schtick and those he communicates with on twitter to be pretty transparent and antithetical to the “face” he wants to present.
