Hillary Clinton expects to meet with Black Lives Matter activists in in the key state of Ohio this weekend.

According to a report from the Associated Press, a Clinton aides says two activists will talk with the candidate in Cleveland about how to “advance equity and opportunity in the African-American community.”

Clinton appears to be leaning heavily on the black community in the state to come out for her as much as they came out for Obama in 2008 and 2012, but pulling the coalition together for Clinton has reportedly been a struggle.

A recent Suffolk University Poll of 500 likely voters shows Clinton and Donald Trump neck and neck in the Buckeye state.

Both candidates are traveling through Ohio this weekend. Clinton held an event at the Cuyahoga Community center Friday and Trump is expected to really his Ohio supporters Saturday at the I-X Center.
