“This will be my first Mother’s Day without my son, Trayvon. I know it will be hard, but with my faith, family, and the outpouring of national support, I will get through,” Sybrina Fulton says in a video released Friday on GlobalGrind.com.
Fulton, the mother of Florida shooting victim Trayvon Martin, is asking parents nationwide to support the Second Chance on Shoot First campaign, a new national campaign working to reform, repeal and prevent passage of new Florida-style “Shoot First” laws around the country.
“I’m asking you to join Florida by calling upon the governor of your state to re-examine similar Stand Your Ground laws throughout the nation to keep our families safe. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
The Second Chance on Shoot First campaign partners include New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, National Urban League, the NAACP, ColorOfChange, National Action Network, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil and Human Rights and VoteVets.
