Sybrina Fulton has spent the better part of the last seven years advocating for an end to gun violence and promoting social justice.
She has appeared on network TV, co-written a book and helped form a non-profit organization — the Trayvon Martin Foundation — named in her son’s memory and based in his hometown of Miami Gardens.
Now she’s challenging the city’s mayor for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission.“Since 2012, I have advocated tirelessly to empower our communities and make them safer,” she said in a statement Saturday. “But the work is not done. I am proud to announce that I will run to represent District 1 on the county commission.”
