Happy birthday Trayvon!
Happy 23rd birthday Trayvon! Over the next several months, we will honor Trayvon's legacy and the sixth anniversary of the founding of Million Hoodies. Today we celebrate Trayvon's life which was cut short due to anti-black racism and gun violence.
Today the Million Hoodies NYC chapter launches the #Lifeat23 campaign to honor Trayvon and the lives lost from police brutality and gun violence. Too many lives from our communities are cut short due to systemic racist practices and prevents young Black and Brown children (and their families) from fulfilling their goals.
We invite you to share pictures and reflections of what life was like when you were 23, or alternatively, what you hope life would be like at the age of 23. Please use #lifeat23 and share your posts over Instagram, Facebook, & Twitter!
