The Republican National Convention in Cleveland is not the only large convention taking place in Ohio this week. 

A couple hundred miles southwest, in Cincinnati, thousands of NAACP members are congregating for the group’s 107th annual convention. This year the theme is “Our Lives Matter, Our Votes Count.” 

Morning Shift checks in with Jessyca Dudley from the Joyce Foundation’s Gun Violence Prevention Program.
