To Kill a Mockingbird

2 instances where Tom Robinson embodies the Mockingbird Trait (innocence) ?

For the essay that I am writing, the prompt asked who best represents the metaphor of the Mockingbird in the novel. I have 1 point already for Tom Robinson. It is when he helps Mayella Ewell and asks for nothing in return. What would 2 other examples be that show how Robinson is a Mockingbird (innocent) in the novel. Thank you!

Tom is uneducated and scared of whites in general. This makes him vulnerable like a mockingbird.

Tom is eventually shot. Atticus had warned Jem that people should never kill a mockingbird: Tom embodies this.
