Music’s most powerful couple took to the concrete jungle today in support of Sybrina Fulton, the mother of slain teenager Trayvon Martin. Today marks the start of protests across the country in opposition to ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws which many blame for the not guilty verdict in favor of George Zimmerman. Although neither chose to speak publicly at NYC’s One Police Plaza, Bey and Jay quietly observed Fulton and Al Sharpton challenge their fellow protestors to join the fight against unfair gun laws.
“We have moved on from the verdict. Of course we are hurting. Of course we are shocked and disappointed, but that just means we have to roll up our sleeves and continue to fight. Now I’m dedicating my life to working with children and the victims of senseless gun violence,” Fulton shared.
