Meagan Good, Dawn Richard And More Come Together #ForTrayvon Movement

July 25, 2013  |  

While we know that many celebrities have spoken out in support of the family of Trayvon Martin, even participating in rallies around the country, a new social media campaign has been launched in order to directly benefit the Trayvon Martin Foundation.  Its hope is to speak out against violent crimes, and to assist families who’ve been impacted by them. Spearheaded by Jason Lee, founder of the I AM READY Foundation in California, the social media campaign called #ForTrayvon will also stress the importance of peace, as well as justice after the disappointing verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. As an individual who lost his own brother to a violent crime, Lee said in a statement that he wants to see a change:

“I launched my foundation to create programs that would address the issues that seemed to constantly plague my community. After my brother’s murder, ending senseless violence was at the top of the list. As a witness of his murder and a victim of gun violence myself, I understand implicitly the pain that is felt daily by families and communities like Trayvon Martin’s.”

He’s not the only one ready for a change. Teaming up with the #ForTrayvon campaign, famous faces from Jamie Foxx, Meagan Good to Vanessa Bell Calloway, Eva Marcille and Dawn Richard (and a lot more) have all shown their support for the cause, as they’ve all posed in the “I AM PEACE” T-shirt for the campaign, which can be found at All proceeds from the shirt will go to both the Trayvon Martin Foundation, as well as the I AM READY Foundation, the latter describing itself as a “for us, by us” organization that empowers youth to unlock their dreams and become educated in the process.”

    I hate when celebrities get involved where were they when Sean Bell got killed or that girl who got shot after performing in the inaugural. So when it’s black on black crime people are immune but when it’s racial we March?

      I agree completely, it does make it seem disingenuous…i think this is why half the nation is giving us the side eye right now.

      I agree, when are celebs going to protest black on black gang violence. I live in Chicago and this goes on everyday. Where are the marches and rallies for that?

    and this does what? nothing! i prefer they lead in real action in boycotting florida

    • guest

      That wont do a thing, not to mention if u boycott Florida you’re gonna have to boycott like 25 other states who has the same law Florida does. Celebs care about money to much so u know thats not gonna happen.People think celebs have more power than they actually do, heck, they think they are more important than they actually are. No one in Florida is loosing sleep over some celebrity boycott. Actually reaching out to the teens dealing with violence and doing things in the individual communities is much more efficient.
