 It’s been ten years since the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was killed by George Zimmerman in February of 2012. The acquittal of Zimmerman, who claimed self-defense under Florida’s Stand Your Ground laws, polarized the U.S.  


On Saturday Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, joined Reverend Al Sharpton and New York City Mayor Eric Adams to honor the 10th anniversary of the death of her son.
