Sybrina Fulton

Sybrina Fulton, who has become an activist for ending gun violence and advancing social justice following the killing of her teenaged son, Trayvon Martin, is running for office in Florida, The Miami Herald reports. Fulton is pursuing a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission. Among other candidates, Fulton will be running against Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert for one of five vacancies opening up due to two-term limits for the 13 member board. Gilbert is predicted to have an edge in the race as major of Miami Gardens, which happens to be the largest city in the district.

Although Fulton released a statement indicating her intent to run, she is expected to make a formal announcement on Monday.

“Our county must continue moving forward so our families are safe from violence, can afford to live in Miami-Dade, and have access to good paying jobs,” she said in the statement. “I am ready to take on these issues and many others in county government.”
