The mother of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin issued a call to arms on Friday to join her in helping to prevent her son’s tragedy from repeating itself.

“Please use my story, please use my tragedy, please use my broken heart to say to yourself ‘We cannot let this happen to anybody else’s child,'” Sybrina Fulton said.

Speaking from the National Urban League Conference in Philadelphia, a visibly emotional Fulton pleaded with the audience to help her remember her son’s legacy through The Trayvon Martin Foundation.

“The verdict is not going to define who Trayvon Martin was. We will define his legacy. We will define who he is and what he was all about,” she said.

Fulton supports an investigation into whether her son’s killer could be charged under federal civil rights laws.
