Black Lives Matter activists on Friday interrupted Hillary Clinton’s rallying of black voters at Clark Atlanta University. Moments into a campaign event where Clinton was set to unveil proposals to reform the criminal justice system to a crowd of roughly 2,100, protesters drowned out a 15-minute portion of the Democratic presidential candidate’s speech.

The protest stemmed from widespread feeling that Clinton is not doing enough to address police brutality and the systematic incarceration of African-Americans.

The protesters, part of the #AUCShutItDown coalition made up of members of the Atlanta University Center, tweeted out this statement before the demonstration, with the hashtags #Hillary4Who and #AUCShutItDown.
