Tiffany Loftin, the new Director for the NAACP Youth and College department showed up at the March For Our Lives Rally and let everyone know what time it is when it comes to confronting gun violence issues in America.
During an interview on the street that was posted by The Crisis, Loftin passionately opened up about why the march is important to the NAACP and why she brought over 1,000 students from all across the country to participate.
“When we talk about legislative issues and solutions for gun violence, it has to include the intersections of black violence. That means guns, that means gangs, that means schools, that means teachers, that means police brutality, that means state violence, it has to include all of that stuff or were not gonna be able to do all of this stuff together,” she stated.
“This is not just about white people and school shootings in the classroom.”
“They kill us in churches, they kill us on the streets, they kill us in the car, they kill us the we are traveling, and they kill us in our classrooms.”
