Sybrina Fulton, the mother of slain 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, organized an event in Ft. Lauderdale, FL to support grieving mothers in the area such as herself.
The Circle of Mothers event is in partnership with Fulton’s Trayvon Martin Foundation and was able to provide first-time attendees with free admission as a result of contributors’ donations.
Fulton has been very vocal since the death of her son and continues to make it her mission in helping grieving because of gun violence.
Fulton’s need for the Circle of Mothers came into existence when realizing there were no similar resources at the time of her son Trayvon’s death. With Fulton’s continued tenacity and hard work, something that was once a dream is now a reality for everyone.
