Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mom, will be entering the race to join the board of Miami-Dade County commissioners.
Fulton said she would continue working to end gun violence. She will challenge Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert for the seat that is up for grabs in 2020.
Trayvon’s parents also run a foundation and have been recognized for their work on gun reform and social justice.
Trayvon was not armed armed when he was murdered by vigilante George Zimmerman, who was later acquitted on bullshit claims of self-defense. His death, among others, sparked the Black Lives Matter movement.
