Since 2013, BLM organizers have been doing work to disrupt systems of oppression and work vision and build the kind of world in which we want to live..
Our work includes non-violent direct action, policy work, movement building, strengthing alliances, community self care, and creative engagement. We are not a direct service or charity organization. However, we are connected to, engage with, and provide as much support as possible to the families of those killed by law enforcement, many of whom have become members of BLMLA.
