Nine years ago today, on February 26th, 2012, Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old young Black man, was shot and killed in Sanford, Florida. This is a day to remember that we are still in the fight for social justice and equality. Since the death of their son, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin have committed their lives to transform tragedy into change. They created The Trayvon Martin Foundation to empower others to become catalysts for social change. In this week's episode of Financial Fridays, we pay tribute to Trayvon's legacy, and to those unarmed Black men and women who have been fatally shot by police officers nationwide since 2015 (at least 135 lives lost).
