WASHINGTON, DC–As Mother’s Day approaches, Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Florida shooting victim Trayvon Martin, released a video asking parents nationwide to support the Second Chance on Shoot First campaign, a new national partnership working to reform, repeal and prevent passage of new Florida-style “Shoot First” laws around the country.The campaign launched after Martin’s death with the support of prominent civil rights leaders, law enforcement officials and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to oppose reckless Shoot First laws that are on the books of 26 states and pending in 10 more.In the video, which debuted this morning on Russell Simmons’ GlobalGrind.com, Ms. Fulton asks parents to join her in sending an electronic Mother’s Day card to state governors, urging them to re-examine these dangerous laws. Simmons introduced the video with the following email to millions of supporters: “As Mother’s Day approaches, my friend and Trayvon Martin’s mom, Sybrina Fulton, has created a powerful video. I urge you to watch it and to join folks all across America in sending a special Mother’s Day message to the people who most need to hear it. Together, we can end the pain that gun violence is bringing into too many mothers’ lives.” In the video, Ms. Fulton asks Americans to join the Second Chance on Shoot First campaign to persuade policymakers to rethink reckless gun laws and prevent future tragedies: “This will be my first Mother’s Day without my son, Trayvon. I know it will be hard, but with my faith, family, and the outpouring of national support, I will get through.”On Sunday, I’m going to say a prayer for other mothers across America who share this unbearable pain. Just like me, 30,000 mothers lost their children this year to senseless gunviolence. Nobody can bring our babies back, but it would bring us some comfort if we can spare other mothers the pain that we will feel on this Mother’s Day, and every day for the rest of our lives.”I’m asking you to join Florida by calling upon the governor of your state to re-examine similar Stand Your Ground laws throughout the nation to keep our families safe. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”The Second Chance on Shoot First campaign partners include New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, National Urban League, the NAACP, ColorOfChange, National Action Network, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil and Human Rights and VoteVets.
