WHO WE ARE
The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) seeks to reach millions, mobilize hundreds of thousands, and organize tens of thousands, so that Black political power is a force able to influence national and local agendas in the direction of our shared Vision for Black Lives.
BLACK POWER RISING 2024
M4BL have created a popular strategy rooted in transformative goals that will impact the millions of Black people looking for direction and leadership in this moment.
During times of great crisis, the systems in America that fail Black people on a normal day become even less reliable and the COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. From mutual aid efforts to disaster relief, Black communities know what’s best for Black people.
BLACK POWER RISING PILLARS
In response to the sustained and increasingly visible violence against Black communities in the U.S. and Globally, a collective of more than 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country have come together with renewed energy, strategy and purpose to articulate a common vision and agenda: The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL). We organize around 5 core pillars.
We will regularly engage approximately 10 percent (4 Million) Black people within the United States through vehicles that consistently ‘touch’ people, responsive tools that identify their desires, and interactive platforms.
We will establish self-determined Black communities where we are in governing power in at least 5-10 localities over the next five years.
We will develop an uncompromising stance in relation to White Nationalist governance, which includes non-compliance, public and private challenges, and harm mitigation measures while also building an independent Black political identity.
We will successfully train 50,000 Black organizers, activists, strategists, and people in other essential roles to accomplish our five-year strategy.
BUILDING ACROSS MOVEMENTS /MULTIRACIAL STRATEGY
We will broadly align the left across issues, sectors, and identity with a particular desire to maintain an intersectional analysis that elevates and centers anti-Black racism.
