Black Lives Matter is made up of regular people who have committed our lives to Black freedom. We’re not paid organizers or “special” people. We’re mamas, babas, workers, formerly incarcerated folks, straight, queer, trans, students, youth, elders, Christians, Muslims, traditional African practitioners...just ordinary Black folks who have stepped into our sacred duty. The struggle takes all of us. Whatever gifts, resources, talents, and passion you have, bring it to the movement! We need you!




Ready to struggle, but not sure what to do next? Black Lives Matter ascribes to a group-centered leadership model. We are leader-full. That means that we want everyone to be empowered with the tools necessary to be effective justice warriors. These toolkits and readings are meant to help you push forward.
