CINCINNATI (AP) – Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is scheduled to speak at the NAACP’s annual convention in Cincinnati.

Clinton is scheduled to speak to the group on Monday afternoon. NAACP leaders say presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump turned down an invitation to the Cincinnati event. He cited scheduling conflicts with the Republican National Convention beginning Monday in Cleveland.

Leaders of the nation’s oldest civil rights organization opened the group’s 107th convention on Saturday. Organizers expect about 5,000 to attend.

The NAACP convention heard from Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Sunday evening. Kasich condemned the slayings of police officers while urging that people work together for healing.

Kasich, who opposed Trump for the GOP nomination, has declined to endorse Trump. He won’t speak at the RNC convention.
