On Saturday night, Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, campaigned for Hillary Clinton and told supporters that gun control is “about human rights.”

Fulton was one of a group of mothers who campaigned for Clinton in two black churches, one in Brooklyn and one in Queens. The other mothers had lost sons or daughters through clashes with members of law enforcement.

According to the New York Daily News, Fulton referenced her son’s death and said gun control “is about human rights.” She added, “Not only about civil rights, but this is about human rights.”

She said the narrative must be changed so that everyone sees gun control as tied to human rights, and she believes Clinton is the one who can secure that change. Fulton said:

We have to do everything we can to change that narrative. That’s why it’s so important that you vote, because that’s your voice. We don’t have another voice. You can do all the marches you want. You can do all the petitions that you want. What’s important is your vote.

George Zimmerman shot and killed Fulton’s son in self-defense in February 2012.
