Women Empowering Women to transform communities
By Kat Tynes
MIAMI, FL — The Trayvon Martin Foundation (TMF) presents its annual Circle of Mothers Weekend and Conference on May 20-22, 2016, 6 p.m. at the Embassy Suites, 1100 S.E. 17 St., Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Among the many special activities planned for the 50 registered guests, is a formal dinner which is open to the public with a minimum donation of $1,500 per person.
Founded by Sybrina Fulton, the Circle of Mothers was established as a means of offering motivational and empowerment sessions for women around the country who have experienced the unimaginable loss of a child, especially due to gun violence.
The conference brings together a cadre of professionals and public officials who offer fellowship, guidance, healing and wellness, and assists mothers with strategies on personal restoration, and how to evolve to make an impact in their communities.
The TMF was created in honor of Fulton’s youngest son, who lost his life to senseless gun violence on Feb. 26, 2012. Since then, she has completely dedicated her life to serving as a source of inspiration and beacon of hope to other families, and traveling the world to battle injustices.
Former attendees include family members of the Sandy Hook Massacre, Aurora Movie Theatre shooting, and the families of Jordan Davis, Oscar Grant, Kendrick Johnson, Sean Bell, Hadya Pendelton, Tamir Rice, and sadly, many others.
Thanks to the support of notable community leaders, such as Jamie Foxx, Iyanla Vanzant, and Harry Belafonte, corporate sponsors, and partnerships with government and private sector, the conference serves to help develop solutions in eradicating gun violence and break the wave of fear and un-certainty as a result of the da-mage it creates.
Media access will be limited; however, interviews will be available upon advance re-quest. Please note: due to limited space, passes are available on a first come, first serve basis.
