In her continued quest to win African American voters, Hillary Clinton met with a unique group of black mothers at a campaign event in South Carolina on Tuesday.
The mothers all had children die from police brutality. In attendance, at a town hall meeting at Central Baptist Church in Columbia, were Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon Martin), Geneva Reed-Veal (Sandra Bland), Gwen Carr (Eric Garner), and Maria Hamilton (Dontre Hamilton).
Clinton first met with the group a year ago, and the mothers plan to host engagements several more times on Clinton’s behalf in South Carolina over the next several days. Many believe the group is key to helping Hillary win over the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
“Secretary Clinton was the first to even mention Black Lives Matter,” said Sybrina Fulton, the mother of shooting victim Trayvon Martin, “and she was the first to reach out to us to even show she cared.”
On Wednesday, Clinton gave an emotional response to SiriusXM’s Joe Madison about meeting with the mothers, and why the country needs to end “the epidemic of gun violence.”
