Young, Gifted, & Brilliant

On June 6th, 2020, the Chapel Hill Carrboro NAACP Youth Council

hosted a Social Justice Rally to honor our slain brothers and sisters.

Thousands attended.

These are our demands.


1. Review of police departments' use of force continuum ensuring that they have at least 6 levels of steps, with clear rules on escalation.

2. Police Departments ban the use of Knee Holds as acceptable in Use of Force.

3. Review of Police Departments' record of disciplining or charging Officers charged with Misconduct.  There should be NO retaliation for reporting!!!


4. Institute a Statewide review board for Police officers who use deadly force - tied to recertification credentials.

5. Quarterly community meetings with police departments to discuss challenges, compliments, and to build community.

I am a rising senior at Eno River Academy in Hillsborough. I have been passionate about fighting for social, racial, and educational equality for many years. As president of the Chapel Hill/Carrboro NAACP Youth Council, I am honored to be able to use my platform to better not only my community, but my neighboring communities as well. I am proud to be an NAACP officer and I look forward to the 2020-2021 year to see what this amazing group of young adults can accomplish.

I have been involved in multiple youth groups over the past few years. My favorite subjects are science and health and one day I hope to pursue a profession in the medical field.
