Wahington Mystics guard, Natasha Cloud, took to Instagram Thursday night to express her displeasures with the recent incidents involving Hendley Elementary School.
And, she said, she's not speaking to the media about anything else until she gets a response.
Hendley Elementary was placed on lockdown Wednesday as a bullet pierced the upper lobby window, making this the second shooting incident in two weeks. Subsequently, Hendley's Field Day was also canceled.
After attending an event there, Cloud used her platform to challenge Ward 8 representative, Trayon White, and D.C. Mayor, Muriel Bowser, to do something about changing the learning environment for kids attending schools in the area.
"Our kids can't even feel safe to go to school right now!" Cloud said. "What are we doing?"
She continued, "and let me tell you something else, Tray, Mayor Bowser. If I don't get a response by tomorrow morning with a solution and/or a sit-down for a solution, because y'all have had a month now to figure this out, we have a rematch of the WNBA Finals tomorrow (June 14th). I will be sure to use all of my media privileges as a blackout and I will only discuss this topic until it gets fixed."
Cloud tweeted on Friday afternoon that neither Bowser nor White have responded to her.
The Mystics' organization said in a statement it "respects the right of our players to speak out in a manner that promotes positive dialogue."
"Together," the organization added, "we aspire to work with civil leaders and elected officials to find ways to better the communities where we play."
Cloud, along with teammate Kristi Toliver, appeared in an "Athletes and Activism" event last month where they spoke about the importance of social activism and using their platform.
“For us in the WNBA and us on the Mystics, we wanna have our voices heard that we’re not a piece of property,” Cloud said at the time.
