Jamie Foxx’s Trayvon Martin Foundation fundraiser

Jamie Foxx is continuing to show his diligence and support for the Trayvon Martin foundation, this time by hosting a celebrity filled fundraiser. The actor, along with Russell Simmons, Marques Houston, Tank, Congresswoman Maxine Waters and Tim Robbins joined forces to raise money for Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton’s cause honoring their late son.

Also on hand for the occasion was their son Jahvaris Fulton who along with the rest of the family accepted a six-figure donation from Russell Simmons. Harry Belafonte was also on hand to give a speech in support of the foundation that hopes to change Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” laws. In addition to the funding, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton were given a mural showing the iconic image of their son donning a hoodie (below).


Prior to hosting the fundraiser for the Trayvon Martin Foundation, Jamie Foxx wore a T-shirt to the MTV Movie Awards with Trayvon’s face on it. He’s also attended various rallies and walked alongside the family during a peace walk in Sanford, Florida.
