The Trayvon Martin Foundation now has a home at Florida Memorial University.
The foundation was started by Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the parents of the Miami Gardens teen who was shot and killed in 2012. Fulton is an alumna of the university. Her foundation works to raise awareness about the impact of violent crimes on families and communities. It’s a support system for people who have experienced tragedies.
Roslyn Artis, president of the Miami Gardens university, sees this as an opportunity to turn tragedy into education.
