Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles
Organized by: Melina Abdullah
#BlackLivesMatter-Los Angeles is the original chapter of the international movement built to challenge state-sanctioned violence against Black people and to vision and build a just and free society. Since 2013, BLM organizers have been doing work to disrupt systems of oppression and work towards solutions to end police profiling, brutality, and murder.
Our work includes non-violent direct action, policy work, movement building, strengthing alliances, community self care, and creative engagement. In a little more than two years, our membership has grown from a few dozen folks to hundreds of active members in Los Angeles alone and tens of thousands worldwide. As we continue to challenge the system, there are real costs involved. We need your support for materials and supplies, travel, and facilities costs related to actions, meetings, and our ongoing work. Please give what you can and encourage others to do the same.
