Trayvon Martin's Parents Retain American Program Bureau as Their Exclusive Speakers' Agency
PR Newswire ^ | November 13, 2013 | Jack Freeman

Posted on 11/14/2013 1:53:44 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

American Program Bureau (APB) is proud to be named the exclusive speaking agency for Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the parents of Trayvon Martin. Since the death of their son, Fulton and Martin have committed their lives to transforming tragedy into change, working to ensure the survival of every child through education and thoughtful conversations about conflict resolution.

The publicity surrounding Trayvon's death and the ensuing trial catapulted the country into national debate. Facing increasing demands to speak publicly, Fulton and Martin are retaining the services of APB to schedule and manage their speaking engagements. Both Fulton and Martin are available to speak individually, or as a combined program. In addition, the couple's legal team of Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks also are available to accompany Fulton and Martin – or can appear individually – pending schedule availability.

A Miami native, Sybrina Fulton has become an inspiring spokesperson for parents and concerned citizens across the country, lending her voice to speak against violence towards children and the need to build safer communities. An honest and relatable speaker, her message not only appeals to people's hearts, but is also one of hope and change, exemplified by her personal experiences and endeavors. As a mother, she inspires audiences to continuously educate their children about civil rights and to help them feel accepted as part of an ever changing society.

Much like Fulton, Tracy Martin has taken his role as proud parent and channeled his efforts to promote the broad societal shift required to ensure that a similar incident never claims the life of another child. Martin's message of change extends to families from all walks of life, encouraging parents, relatives, caregivers and teachers to let their sons, daughters, and other loved ones know that their lives are valuable and to stress that they are loved no matter how society views them. Although his son is gone, Martin hopes Trayvon's death helps to heal the country and acts as motivation for parents and caregivers to keep fighting for the safety of all children

American Program Bureau is honored to manage and host these honest and influential conversations, which can be customized to meet the needs of diverse audiences from colleges and legal professionals to community and business organizations. Through their inspiring and thought provoking presentations, Fulton and Martin are hoping to encourage the positive changes that can help keep every family safe.

These “parents” never cared about their son until after he died. Now they care because their dead son is their meal ticket.

Can you imagine calling APB, and asking them to recommend a speaker...”We are having a gathering of hoodlums, hoodlum enablers, and gang members. Do you have anyone who fits the bill? Someone to address such a crowd?”

“”Martin hopes Trayvon’s death helps to heal the country and acts as motivation for parents and caregivers to keep fighting for the safety of all children “””

Even the “children” who sit on top of white hispanics and pound their heads into the concrete?

I’m sure Trayvon would be proud of his sperm and egg donors. They did SO much to raise their little Skittle eater to be a productive member of society.

Hey Ma, shoulda taught your child not call himself a "NoLimitNigga" and not to try to beat down a guy carrying a gun. (Laying off the 'drank' would have been a plus, too)

thoughtful conversations about conflict resolution.

LOL! Maybe St. Traaaaayyyvon should have thought of that before he started pounding Zimmerman's skull into the pavement!

This race-baiting industry will be noted by historians as one of the causes of the collapse of America and Western Civilization. If there are any historians left.

Exactly.

Who's paying for all these meal tickets?

Amen to that.

This story is laughable..

Now some low life agency has taken them on for what it can get out of them. They will milk this thing till the cow is dry.

They’re getting away with this because conservatives of national stature particularly black conservatives are not comming forward with the facts to challange the media and Obama. The Zimmerman episode was manufactured to promote racial discord. That has resulted in murders of whites and hispanics.

As soon as it is made clear that the whole story was conjured up to do so (flame up the black base) don’t be surprized when that ever does happen that lefty outtfit APB will drop this like a burning potato.
