Dancing for Action, an interpretive protest dance troupe, held a flash mob outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., to rally against "Stand your ground" and the illegality of stop-and-frisk laws, Newsone reports.

The troupe chose Saturday evening outside the arena as the Brooklyn Nets were playing the Miami Heat for one reason: The Heat were vocal in their support of justice after the George Zimmerman verdict.


"We knew that they were also in support of making some change against 'Stand your ground,' " dancer Shelia Anozier told Newsone. "I know that they took some steps after the verdict came out and wore hoodies and posted it on social media and wrote things on their sneakers in support. We just want to show them there is a group of people out here that [are] moving towards change."
