The Movement for Black Lives, born out of the uprising in Ferguson, MO, has become a powerful, dynamic constellation of leaders and groups that have come together to tackle a variety of interconnected problems. The individuals of this movement are young, Black, queer, trans, feminist, immigrant, and undocumented leaders who are embracing grassroots organizing as a core strategy to educate and mobilize people to address state violence and injustice in Black communities.
For generations, Black-led social justice institutions have been under-resourced and their leaders have not received adequate support. As a new generation of leaders shapes the conversation about race, criminalization, state and gender violence in the United States, the Black-led Movement Fund (BLMF) aims to transform this scenario by supporting intersectional, Black-led organizing and their leaders as they build and activate bases of power in local communities.
