Natasha Cloud and Mystics’ Four-Year Push for Gun Violence Awareness Continues | #schoolsaftey

By Tyler Byrum

WASHINGTON — Nearly four years ago to the day Natasha Cloud walked into a Washington Mystics practice feeling it was her responsibility to make a statement. Not one in her play but one in her voice and in her off-court actions.

Over the previous two weeks, there were two separate shootings outside of Hendley Elementary School — a school less than two miles away from the team’s practice facility and arena. In both shootings, no one was hurt but bullets shattered windows and forced the school into lockdowns.

At the very next game, the Mystics, led by Cloud, held a monumental media blackout. No players spoke about basketball. The point guard did all the speaking and in her media time, the only discussion was about gun violence.
