Naomi Wadler, an elementary school student in Virginia, took to the stage at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, DC to represent women of color impacted by gun violence.

Wadler captivated the massive audience with a speech more powerful than one would expect from an 11-year-old student.

“Me and my friend Carter led a walk-out at our elementary school on the fourteenth,” Wadler explained. “We walked out for eighteen minutes, adding a minute to honor Cortland Arrington, an African-American girl who was the victim of gun violence in her school in Alabama after the Parkland shooting.”

“I am here to acknowledge & represent the African-American girls whose stories don’t make the front page of every national newspaper, whose stories don’t lead on the evening news,” she continued.

The fifth grader also put politicians on notice that she would be old enough to vote in only seven years.

“My friends and I might still be 11, and we might still be in elementary school but we know,” Wadler noted. “We also know that we stand in the shadow of the Capitol, and we know that we have 7 short years until we too have the right to vote.”

Published

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) met with Culinary Union members in Las Vegas, Nevada Tuesday night during the CNN town hall for her opponents. The Culinary Union is made up of the over 60,000 hotel housekeepers, bartenders, restaurant and casino workers, and others who make up the backbone of the entire city. Many members are Spanish-speaking and people of color, yet it was still puzzling why Klobuchar began her speech with a bizarre anecdote.

According to Culinary members and reporters present, she began by saying, "My name is Amy, but when I was in fourth grade Spanish they gave me the name Elena."
