Sybrina Fulton, The Mother Of Trayvon Martin, Is Running For Office


The mother of Trayvon Martin, the black unarmed teenager who was fatally shot by then-neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Florida in 2012, is running for office in Florida.

Following her years of anti-gun violence activism since Trayvon’s death 7 years ago, Sybrina Fulton confirmed Saturday that she would be launching a bid for the Miami-Dade County Commission.

“Since 2012, I have advocated tirelessly to empower our communities and make them safer,” she told The Miami Herald. “But the work is not done. I am proud to announce that I will run to represent District 1 on the county commission.”

“Our county must continue moving forward so our families are safe from violence, can afford to live in Miami-Dade, and have access to good paying jobs,” she continued. “I am ready to take on these issues and many others in county government.”

  1. Silly, why isn’t she running for President? Because of her color she might have a better chance than DeBlasio and other clowns running. After all, that’s the only reason Obama was chosen.
