The mother of Trayvon Martin is running for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, the Miami Herald reported Saturday.
Since the death of her 17-year-old son, Sybrina Fulton has been advocating for social justice and an end to gun violence.
Martin was shot to death in 2012 by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime watch member in Sanford, Fla.
Zimmerman was charged with murder, but was acquitted after claiming he fired in self-defense.
Fulton said she’s not anti-gun, but wants better gun-control measures, including more background checks.
