• Sybrina Fulton to speak at NABJ convention in Kissimmee


    KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Trayvon Martin's mother made another plea Monday for state officials across the country to take a closer look at their self-defense laws.

    Sybrina Fulton spoke Monday morning at the National Bar Association's Annual Conference in Miami Beach.

    "I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder. I think we have to change these laws so that people don't get away with murder," Fulton said.

    It's the latest stop of her campaign to get justice for her son.

    Fulton will be in Osceola County later in the week to speak at the 38th annual National Association of Black Journalists convention.

    Monday marks the 14th day the Dream Defenders have protested in the governor's office, calling on him to repeal Florida's stand your ground law.

    Gov. Rick Scott has said repeatedly he will not call a special session and has not met with the group.

    The protesters said they plan to hold what they call their own special session Tuesday in the state's Capitol museum to discuss Florida's gun laws and racial profiling.
