Today is the second anniversary of the tragic and untimely death of Florida teen, Trayvon Martin. His life was cut short at the hands of an overzealous, self-proclaimed neighborhood watchman, whom we’ve chosen to no longer name. Because we stand on a platform that many people of color respect, we’ve decided to keep Trayvon’s legacy alive while telling youth of color that their lives matter.
We are here to be a mouthpiece for our generation. We want young men of color to know that while they may wear the same hoodie Trayvon Martin wore and walk to the store for a snack, just as he did, their lives don’t have to end in the same way. To the young men who have looked at this tragedy in fear, know this-–Your Life Matters. We want to give Tiara a special THANK YOU for joining us in this fight! Her message is extremely heartfelt and potent.
