GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Students at North Carolina A&T university are adding a new approach to the marches and demonstrations as part of the Black Lives Matter movement across the country using their cell phones.

On Wednesday, the student group Bombshells in Business set up a phone bank in the cafeteria at Williams Hall where students called state lawmakers directly, voicing concerns about issues on campus and in their communities.

Students called in about topics like financial aid, campus security and recent national events surrounding police shootings.

On Feb. 24, the group will host another event collecting toiletries, canned goods, and used clothing to send to families and demonstrators in Ferguson, Mo.
