Keiajah Brooks — the Kansas City woman who went viral for denouncing the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners —says she’s being protected by the Not Fucking Around Coalition (NFAC) following complaints that officers from the Kansas City Police Department were harassing her. The news comes hours after she assured fans she was not leaving her city, but only “heightening” her security.

Last week, Brooks went viral after she shared a video of her criticizing local commissioners for choosing “profits over people,” and calling for Police Chief Rick Smith’s resignation. The young woman was praised by fellow activists, but days later, she revealed she was being tagged by members of the police department.

The activist took to social media over the weekend to inform followers that cops followed her as she went from her photoshoot, to trunk-or-treating and back to her apartment complex. In the videos, she showed the police car in her private parking lot, noting the calls she received from an unknown number may have been the officers’ way of tracking her.

Brooks shared another post highlighting ways the police may attempt to kill her and asked followers to donate to her CashApp to help get her security.

She later clarified she was not frightened by the officers’ scare tactics and would remain in Kansas City.

“Let me make a distinction before I go on a social media detox until after the election. We walk by faith and not by sight round these parts,” she tweeted. “I’m not afraid of any threats, I’m simply making the general public aware. I’m not moving out of KC. I am heightening my security.”

The NFAC — a self-described Black militia founded by Grandmaster Jay — emerged in the wake of ongoing racial inequality and police brutality and has appeared at protests for Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
