Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, will be the featured speaker at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 21, at the downtown Cleveland Public Library.
Margaret Bernstein, WKYC director of advocacy and community initiatives, will interview Fulton during a candid conversation on stage in the Main Library, Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium, 325 Superior Ave.
It sparked a national uproar in 2012 when Fulton’s son, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, died at the hands of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla. A jury acquitted Zimmerman in 2013.
Fulton, who lives in Miami, will update the audience on the projects she has undertaken since her son’s death.
She and Trayvon’s father, Tracy Martin, have established the Trayvon Martin Foundation to increase awareness of how violent crime affects victims’ families. The foundation’s services include organizing an annual peace walk in Trayvon’s memory and assisting families with paying for the funerals of violence victims.
