On Monday, Hillary Clinton spoke during the NAACP Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio. During her speech, Clinton declared that the violence and “madness has to stop.” She said that as president she would push for reforms in law enforcement, and she condemned the killing of police officers following the murder of three officers yesterday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She said, “There is, as you know so well, another hard truth at the heart of this complex matter: Many African-Americans fear the police.” Clinton vowed to work toward bridging the gap between the African American community and local police forces. A video from the event is below and a transcript of her speech is available HERE.
Following the event, Clinton traveled to the University of Cincinnati where she spoke at a local voter registration drive. She spoke about the importance of the 2016 election, and how important it is for voters to send a clear message that they do not stand for the divisive beliefs of Republican Donald Trump. She urged volunteers to continue registering Ohioans to vote and plans to spread her message across the country. A video of Clinton’s speech is below.
