It’s always great to see more celebrities show their support for Trayvon Martin and his family.
I AM READY Foundation Launches Trayvon Martin Campaign
California-based I AM READY Foundation, spearheaded by founder Jason Lee, announced today the launch of http://www.FORTRAYVON.org and its #ForTrayvon social media campaign, rallying widespread national support for social justice to “Unite One Million People for Change.” The campaign will directly benefit The Trayvon Martin Foundation to assist in creating awareness of how violent crimes impact families of the victims and provide much-needed support for those families, in light of the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Heralded for its innovation and endless pursuit of social justice, the I AM READY Foundation has garnered tremendous support and recognition from Congress, the Senate, and California’s Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom. Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx has voiced his consistent support of the Trayvon Martin Foundation and family since Trayvon’s death. The foundation’s latest campaign stresses the message of peace and justice in light of the verdict of the State of Florida v. George Zimmerman trial.
“I launched my foundation to create programs that would address the issues that seemed to constantly plague my community. After my brother’s murder, ending senseless violence was at the top of the list. As a witness of his murder and a victim of gun violence myself, I understand implicitly the pain that is felt daily by families and communities like Trayvon Martin’s,” says Lee.
The Trayvon Martin “I AM PEACE” T-shirt is available for sale on http://www.FORTRAYVON.org, with proceeds supporting the Trayvon Martin and I AM READY foundations. Celebrities Meagan Good, Kym Whitley, Dawn Richard, Chris Brown, Mehcad Brooks and more have taken a stand by wearing the shirt.
