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!
