The women who include Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton and Eric Garner’s mother Gwen Carr made the endorsement Tuesday at Rock Of Ages Church in Greenville. They said they were drawn to Secretary Clinton’s message of curtailing gun violence and police reform and believe she’s the best person to run the country.
“Secretary Clinton was the first to even mention Black Lives Matter and she was the first to reach out to us to even show she cared,” said Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother.
“She’s going to be my candidate,” said Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner. “I’m going to endorse her because she endorsed me first.”
