Lucy McBath awarded VH1’s Dear Mama Mother of the Year (VIDEO)

Lucy McBath was honored by VH1 over the weekend as the 2016 Dear Mama Mother of the Year.

McBath is the mother of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, who was shot and killed in 2012 following a confrontation over loud music in the parking lot of a Jacksonville, Florida, gas station. McBath has since become an activist for gun reform.

Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton took a few minutes from her campaign schedule to reach out to McBath and recognize the work she does.

“Lucy, honestly, I don’t know how you do what you do,” Clinton said. “From the Walk With Jordan Scholarship Foundation, to your advocacy for common-sense gun laws, you’re moving mountains through your faith and determination.”

The Dear Mama event is a special time for A-listers to offer words of affection and appreciation for their mothers on Mother’s Day.
