Contribute to the platform for "A New Vision for Black Lives Matter" - #Vision4BlackLives

At the Movement For Black Lives Convening in July 2015, 
we received a mandate that we needed to form a united front to create a set of national demands that would lift up the radical work being done across the country. Political candidates and others continue to articulate policies that don't represent our vision, don’t address the ongoing war on our communities, and aren’t accountable to us. We’ve come together to tell the country — and the world — that instead, we are choosing to advance a vision and a set of demands that we hope will move us closer to freedom.
 
One year later, over 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country have collectively developed A Vision For Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom, & Justice.
 
This platform does not belong to any one entity — it is all of ours collectively. This platform is not new — it lifts up the transformative work and demands of grassroots organizations from across the country, reflects dreams and conversations from Black people everywhere, and builds on the legacy of struggle that we have inherited and continue. We invite you to be a part of the launch starting right now.
  • Visit policy.m4bl.org now, and share your thoughts and favorite parts of the platform using the hashtag #Vision4BlackLives. You can download some social media graphics and profile pictures to help spread the news, straight from the website.

  • On TuesdayAugust 2 at 3pm EST/12pm PST, we will be hosting a #Vision4BlackLives Twitter Town Hall discussion. We want you to join, and lift up what parts of the platform most resonate with you, which ones you have questions about, and which ones you’re working on.

Justice will be ours. Power will be ours. Let’s get free.
