In light of the not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of unarmed teen, Trayvon Martin, we’ve decided to continue the fight for justice with our #YourLifeMatters campaign. With #YLM, we are asking celebrities to use their elevated platform to remind young men of color that their lives matter. Stars like LaLa Anthony, Mack Wilds, Reverend Al Sharpton and more have joined us in the fight and we’re grateful that everyone is passionate about this cause.
We are here to be a mouthpiece for our generation. We want young men of color to know that while they may wear the same hoodie Trayvon Martin wore and walk to the store for a snack, just as he did, their lives don’t have to end in the same way. To the young men who have looked at this tragedy in fear, know this-–Your Life Matters. We want to give Rickey Smiley Morning Show’s female voice of reason, Ebony Steele a special THANK YOU for joining us in this fight! Her message is extremely heartfelt and potent.
Share your stories of inspiration to uplift this generation. We need it right now!
