Sybrina Fulton considers running for office
Sybrina Fulton’s life changed forever when her son, Trayvon Martin, was shot dead by George Zimmerman in 2012. Ever since then, she’s gotten deeply involved in social justice work and grassroots organizing to help protect Black lives. Her journey through life may be headed to a new level.
Local 10 News reports that Fulton is considering running for political office in the future. While speaking at her alma mater, Miami Norland Senior High School, Fulton commented on how more needs to be done to save Black lives.
“I am considering running for office … I can do my best,” Fulton said.
Fulton has already written a book on the changes in her life following Trayvon’s death and created the Trayvon Martin Foundation. But she believes working in politics could help her do more.
“The only thing I can do is try,” Fulton said about running for office herself. “And, I am not afraid to try.”
