Black Lives Matter Platform (& Resources)

An umbrella of over 50 BLM organizations released a platform calling for racial justice, titled “A Vision for Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom, & Justice.” [i] The website includes many position briefs including a section on “An Immediate End to the Criminalization and Dehumanization of Black Youth Across All Areas of Society Including, but Not Limited to, Our Nation’s Justice and Education Systems, Social Service Agencies, Media, and Pop Culture.” Part of its global intersectionality, the platform supported the Palestinian struggle against the “apartheid state” of Israel, along with the BDS movement to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel.
