Two weeks ago, people around the globe came together to participate in #BlackWomenAreDivine weekend, a reclamation in the name of Breonna Taylor. The vision for the weekend is a disruption of oppressions and imposed identities that turn Black women into mules. The assertion of our Divinity is a challenge to the violent white-supremacist-patriarchal-heteronormative-capitalism that stole Breonna’s life, along with the lives of so many of our...

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is a Black-led organization that supports Black led movements across the globe. In building such a movement, we have encountered over the last 7 years individuals who have continually misrepresented our organization and solicited donations all in the name of Black Lives Matter. The recent and past behavior of Tyree Conyers-Page, also known as Sir Maejor Page, has continued to compromise the integrity...

It was just over a week ago that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away after a lifetime of serving her country, advocating for equal justice under law. Earlier today, Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court nominee — a nominee that has no interest in equal justice under law. The right to our bodies. The right to choose. LGBTQ rights. Access to affordable health care. Civil rights and equality — it’s all at...

We are completely disgusted and outraged by the indescribable decision that has been rendered in the murder of our beloved, Breonna Taylor. Here we are, yet again, a Black life that has been dehumanized at the hands of the police in cold-blooded murder; has no value in a criminal legal system that is supposed to protect it. We send our love and condolences to Breonna’s family who has to endure the painful reality that they may never...

In response to the outlandish comments made by televangelist Pat Robertson, we are here yet again being attacked for standing up against white supremacy. To insinuate that our movement is trying to destroy Christianity is disgraceful and outright offends our Christian siblings who are a part of our movement against racial injustice. The statements made by Pat Robertson are completely inflammatory and dangerous. Black Lives Matter Global Network...

Patrisse CullorsThe number seven holds power. Many of us have heard the adage that the cells of our body are renewed and replaced every seven years. The reality is a little more complex. Some of our cells are replaced rapidly, others emerge in a crisis only to disappear, while others, like those that form our DNA, endure for our lifetime. But the average age of our cells is seven. As Black Lives Matter celebrates its seventh anniversary, I...

On Sunday, August 23, another Black man, Jacob Blake, was shot in the back seven times in front of his three children, by police officers in Kenosha, WI while attempting to enter his car. We are grieved by Jacob’s attempted murder and outraged that even after the global watershed of protest following the death of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Jayne Thompson in close succession, we have found ourselves here,...
